The Raesfeld moated castle has the highest tower of all castles in Westphalia and the associated historical zoo is unique in Germany in terms of its size and type. Why did Count Alexander II create a zoo back then and what is that anyway – a castle garden with animals or a zoo at the castle? Just one of many questions that are resolved in the biparcours.
The starting point is the glass one NaturparkHouse Tiergarten Schloss Raesfeld. If you want to take part in the biparcours, you will receive a map with a 2,2 kilometer route and some prominent points. The path leads to the castle courtyard and there over a former drawbridge into the inner courtyard. The biparcours begins in front of the main castle. This leads to the most diverse, beautiful and interesting places and offers plenty of information with tasks, quizzes and games. History buffs in particular are in the right place here!
