Located in the Black Forest, this park is the second of its kind in Germany. The idea is to offer a better life to bears that have lived in captivity. The first bear to move into the park was called Jurka, and she has been joined by more bears and also wolves. During feeding times, the animal keepers provide insights into the life and habits of the animals. Near Bad Rippoldsau-Schapbach, 60 miles/100 km southwest of Stuttgart
