In the idyllic countryside beside the ancient monastery of Geras, a nature park offers the opportunity to see many of the animals of the region, including fallow and sika deer, in their natural environment. The Children's Zoo has an animal petting area, a lush pond landscape, a bat trail, and an observation tower. It also has several unique attractions like the buzzing stone and the wooden xylophone. To make your trip most interesting, we recommend starting your Geras adventure by taking a ride on the nostalgic Reblaus Express Train. The old-time diesel train is made up of historic, open-air cars so that you can take your bike along or sit in the wine-tasting car and sample the local wines along the way. Departures from Retz three times daily, on Saturdays and Sundays only, at 9:20, 13:20 and 16:20.
