“Very nicely landscaped place. A special treat for children, so many animals in the park. There is also a small self-service restaurant and a playground that is very creatively designed. The animals are friendly, you can pet many of them. It’s worth to visit it if you’re in the area.”Müllerlei LajosLocaler tourguide
The renovated animal and wildlife park
The zoo owned by Bakonyerdő Zrt., which bears the name Imre Festetics, opened its doors in 2012. In 2021 the zoo was renewed, among the novelties was the wildlife park laid out on 4.6 hectares, where we can get to know 5 large animals found in Hungary: roe deer, mouflons, fallow deer, wild boars, red deer and sheep. We can see the animals in a more natural, wooded environment than before. For the enjoyment of children, there is also a playground and a petting zoo in the park.
Coming from the 71 main road, we have to go towards Faludi Street at the Gyenesdiás roundabout and then continue for about 500 meters and turn left onto Dornyai Béla Street. The beautiful building of the visitor center will be visible on the right. Free parking is available in front of the visitor center.
