Wisent mask

Wisent mask and silhouette at entrance gate

With their impressive height of nearly two metres, wisents perform a key role as one of the big grazers shaping the landscape. On top of that, they are a real attraction. Visitors meet their life-size image at two of the entrance gates. A sign at the side of the path helps them estimate how far fifty metres – the safe distance between humans and wisents – actually is.
