Allendorf Bat House

Detailed description

The lower rooms of the building were redesigned into an information centre. There kindergartens, school classes and all other interested parties can inform themselves about the habits of the approx. 1000 bats. Via infrared cameras everybody can have a look into the parlour of the mouse ears. However, the animals can only be found in the house from April to October. The rest of the time they spend in frost-free caves, cellars, bunkers and former mine tunnels. With the purchase of the bat house and the protection of the winter and hunting areas, HGON has succeeded in ensuring the year-round protection of the mouse ear colony.
