WELCOME TO "MÄRCHENWALD"

FAIRY TALE AND ANIMAL PARK IN SCHONGAU SINCE 1965

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!

 

WE'RE OPEN MONDAY - FRIDAY FROM 10AM TO 6PM AND WEEKENDS FROM 9AM TO 7PM

 

In case of extremely poor weather conditions the park may be closed sooner. In doubt, please make sure to give us a call and check with us before you start your trip and also pay attention to information on our webpage and our Facebook page.

 

NEW SINCE MARCH 2018

Also this year, we've been busy all winter to create something new, renovate and improve our fairy tale and animal park!

A brand new and interactive playground has been created infront of our restaurant's terrace and we're amazed by all the positive feedback we're receiving for it!

Some of you will be keen to try out the codes you can scan with your smartphone. There's stories, games and more hidden in the playground. Very exciting! :-)

You'll also find new swings that are made for small kids and all different kind of rotating and spinning objects that are usually crowded with kids. The best of it all: There's nearly no risk of getting hurt as we have laid out small stones that function like a cushion should someone fall off and down on the ground.

Have fun all of you!

We are looking forward to many passengers, young and old alike. In our enchanting tunnel a new tale is being told - come and see yourself...! 

FREE WIFI

FREE WIFI in our fairy tale park! 

Since our internet connection is not yet running on fibreglass (but soon will be!), the offering of free wifi has to be limited to 3 hours per day/person in order to have all the guests enjoy a stable connection.

In case of any questions or queries, please come to the "KIOSK" at the entry.

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! :-)

"A very nice, litle park for smaller children. Very well-kept park. Very nice were the animals. My children had a great day riding a pony, feeding animals, romping around and watching the fairy tales. Food was good and plentiful. Price also ok"
