Want to fill your lungs with clean country air? These five Bavarian farmyards can easily be reached by rail and provide wildly good fun for the whole family. Go see sheep, goats, etc. on a wonderful holiday on the farmyard.
Enjoy the ins and outs of country life and hit the hay in the hay hotel – sound like the perfect family holiday? You and your children can stroke the animals, taste yummy home-made products, have breakfast in an old pigsty and sleep in a former cowshed in the Heuhotel (hay hotel) in Pegnitztal.
A holiday at the organic farmyard in Feuchtwangen will be an unforgettable experience for cow fans big and small. The daily activity programme is tailored to be child friendly – little ones can help with looking after and feeding the animals each evening.
You don't mind large animals – but prefer stroking rabbits and pot-bellied pigs? Then the small animal farm by the Brombachsee lake is the perfect place for you on your farmyard holiday.
Relaxation for the whole family – this dream for the perfect Bavarian holiday becomes reality at Altmühlsee lake. If you rent a holiday house on the farmyard, the pigs Fritz and Frieda and the ponies Max and Moritz will entertain your little ones – while you relax in the on-site wellness area.
The Eichenmüller family not only wanted to make their farmyard animal friendly, but they also wanted to bring children and their parents closer to nature and farm animals. After a day on the farmyard stroking calves and feeding the animals hay, you can be sure that the children will know where milk comes from. And that not all cows are called Daisy!
