Nandu Eifelpark


Right at the entrance to the Eifelpark, the excursion destination with children in the Eifel, an emus share a 30,000 m² outdoor enclosure with white and black fallow deer.

Emus belong to the order of ratites. They are flightless and have a different ancestry, parallel development, similar appearance, but come from completely different regions of the world.

The large, flightless ratites reach a size of between 1.60 metres and 1.90 metres and weigh between 30 and 45 kg. Native to Australia, emus are the largest bird species there and are found all over the 5th continent. Its wings only exist as stumps with a length of approx. 20 cm. Emus can reach speeds of up to 50 km/h when fleeing.
