Adventure and nature on Elfenberg Mautern

Elfenberg Mautern is a recreation paradise in the heart of Styria. Here you can take in nature at elevations of 1,000 m.
Together more than 200 wild animals, a lovely mountain panorama and a leisure park with thrilling rides make Elfenberg Mautern one of Styria’s most popular destinations.

Convenient access: by car (direct exit from A9) or by train

Wild animals up close
The spacious enclosures allow visitors to observe the natural behaviour of wild animals. In Europe’s largest bear enclosure, the bear family shares their 10,000m² habitat with
lynxes. A tree trunk offers access to a fascinating underground wolves den and an abundance of young animals are waiting to be petted at the idyllically situated children's farm.

The nature arena of the birds of prey
The birds of prey show is one breathtaking event – the falcon, swift as an arrow, the silent eagle owl, the mysterious snow owl, the mighty vulture and the regal bald eagle all sail through the air daily (except Mondays) at 11 am and at 2:30 pm.

Fun and action in the leisure park
The rides of the leisure park are a thrill for visitors of all ages with an urge for speed and height. The Nautic Jet blasts you off through the air and, believe it or not, you’ll land in the water without getting wet.
The Butterfly makes you feel what gravity is all about and you’ll reach the top on your own steam at the Tower. You can fulfil your dreams of flying on the Skydive, and ride waves on the long slide. The Luna Loop turns things topsy-turvy and the Unicorn ride invites you to a world of imagination.

Push scooter run and summer toboggan run
The new push scooter run is the latest attraction at Elfenberg and a must for thrill-seeking people. Fun and action are guaranteed on this 1,600-metre ride. Equally popular is the 1,200-metre summer tobogganing run which lets passengers gently glide down to the valley.

Culinary pleasures and events
Beside the restaurant down in the valley and the ‘Koboldkiosk’, the new ‘Wildpark Gasthaus’ that seats 100 and a sun terrace offering magnificent panoramic views invite one to linger and enjoy the ambience.
