Do you enjoy visiting those children’s zoos where you can watch and stroke the animals? Then our Barnyard Buddies package is what you are looking for. Under guidance of a Hutko’s crew member, you can meet the animals and stroke them from behind the fence or in their pen.
If you’re up for a fully interactive approach to animals, you may like our Feed & Stroke a Llama-moments. When looking for the more traditional children’s zoo experience, where you can just watch the animals and cuddle them if you like, then Barnyard Buddies is the thing. During a Barnyard Buddies tour visitors are guided around by a Hutko’s crew member who will answer your questions about the animals and their peculiarities. During the tour, you are free to cuddle the animals from behind the fence. You can also enter the pens for a closer look, if you like. But mind you, when looking too closely into the eyes of Murmeli the ox, you might be treated with a very wet kiss.
Barnyard Buddies tours take about an hour and are available throughout the year.
Barnyard Buddies tours are 8 € / person. Infants can come along free of charge.
You can check for available Barnyard Buddies moments on the booking calendar and book your tour there as well. Payments can be made in advance with PayPal or on site by credit card or cash. We welcome groups of max. 15 people. Please note that reservations are binding!

Our animals are tame and used to visitors and children coming over. Especially the llamas are extremely child friendly – we would almost put a ‘child proof’ label on them. They do not kick nor bite and will skillfully avoid stepping on little toes.
During summer time part of our animals are outside in the field. Our guests are also welcome to visit them there. During winter time the animals are mainly inside in the barn.
