FAIRY TALE AND ANIMAL PARK IN SCHONGAU SINCE 1965

Experience portrayals and narratives of the Grimm brother's most famous fairy tales, situated beautifully in the woods between Schongau and Peiting.

You'll find various animals in the park, goats, sheep, nandus, deers and ponies that can be reached on a round tour.

Playgrounds, rich in variety for every age, our adventure forest, a leisure lawn with sun beds, pony riding services and a generous food and drink area complete the offering.

The ideal destination for a family day trip if you're based in Munich, Swabia, Upper Bavaria or the Allgäu!

OUR RESTAURANT MÄRCHENWALD

After a stroll through the park, feeding the animals and having tested all of our playgrounds, we invite you to eat at our restaurant and enjoy a place designed for families!

Our meals are homemade and of bavarian style, you'll find coffee and cakes and our rooms have kid's corners, where your children can play and make friends with others.

A family timeout at its best! :-)

OUR GUESTS' COMMENTS ON GOOGLE

"A fantastic place! Due to the variation of fairy tales, animals, nature and playgrounds, the Märchenwald is our favorite day trip destination in the area! Around every corner there's something new to discover and you don't have to run miles along reserves as in common zoos. Simply beautiful and done with love!"

Robert Herbst, March 2018

"The Schongauer Märchenwald accompanies me since my childhood. It's great to watch it develop. I always gladly return with my kids. When we went there for lunch with our children during vacation time we were positively surprised how quickly the food was served. Every year we can observe how investments and extentions are being made! Keep it up!"

"We visited the Märchenwald with our two kids in October 2017 and we were more than excited. Everything was super clean and the animals were kept well. The attractions for the children were not run-down and the children can move around freely without any concern. Put in a nutshell: very good."
