11 - Mundenhof, animal trail opened in 1968
In 1892, the city of Freiburg bought the centuries-old Mundenhof estate to "trickle" the sewage of the city (hence the name Rieselfeld – literally "trickle ground"). The Mundenhof municipal estate was at one time the largest agricultural enterprise in the country with agriculture, dairy farming and animal husbandry.
In 1968, with the support of the Mayor of Freiburg, Eugen Keidel, an animal trail was opened at the Mundenhof and the Fördergemeinschaft Freiburger Tiergehege eV was founded. Within a short time of its inception, it was attracting more than 100,000 people each year. In the course of the last decades, a recreation area with many special features and a close connection between agriculture, animal life and natural sciences has developed here.
With 38 hectares, the Mundenhof is the largest animal park in Baden-Württemberg. The generously laid out paddocks are home to domestic livestock and livestock breeds from all over the world. In addition, farmers continue to cultivate around 180 hectares for an ecological cycle management. Link
