BEAR SANCTUARY Müritz offers bears, that are unable to be returned to the wild, a natural habitat in which they can fulfill their urge to wander, withdraw into their own space, dig out dens and go into a state of hibernation. When they arrive at the sanctuary, they first receive medical care. If they are ready, they are slowly accustomed to their new surroundings. Behavioral and environmental enrichment keeps the bears occupied and encourages bears coming out of captivity to behave naturally again. The bears are encouraged to socialize in order to further reduce behavioral disorders. After being fully acclimatization, our bears can fully enjoy their new-found freedom and engage in their own unique behaviors at last.

The whole visitors centre, including the shop, bistro and reception is completely barrier-free. Visitors can follow a designated route through the sanctuary which is broad and as wheelchair-friendly as possible (best come with a companion though). Dogs are welcome on a leash but can enjoy playing in the big, fenced-in playground. There are many different guided tours and events for children and adults available. We can also tailor experiences for individual groups, families and school or kindergarten classes. Get all the details on the website.
