Mautern in Steiermark Things to Do
Wildpark Mautern is an animal park, located up in the mountains in an altitude of 1100 m. You go there by chair lift, which takes about 15, 20 minutes. I reccomend to take some heavier clothes with you- it can get chilly up there. They show for example lynxes, wolves, bears, deers and other game animals and wild pigs. They have a petting zoo as well, it is built like a little farm, with bunnies, guinea pigs, baby goats, donkeys, ponies and even a little fawn- it is quite lovely. Very interesting was the bird show- make sure you don`t miss it. It is scheduled every day except Monday at 11 and 2:30 p.m. There are plenty of attractions for children. Down you can either walk, go by chair lift or by luge (at an additional fee of about 4 EUR). Entrance (including the chair lift) costs about 14 EUR. They are open between end of April and end of October.
