The Wildcat Secret Path

The Wildcat Secret Path

The Wildcat Path gives a wonderful insight into the natural habitat of the wild cats, but with its seven kilometres it is slightly too long for not only a few visitors.

In order to make it nevertheless possible to experience the beauty of the National Park first hand, the considerably shorter Wildcat Secret Path has now been built. With its length of 1.5 kilometres, it is much shorter than its big brother, but it nevertheless gives a very good insight into the impressive flora and fauna of the Hainich. The path is easily accessible and suitable for prams. On request, it is also possible to use a fire place with grill and benches for a family excursion to the wildcat village.
