Wild Boar at the Gasthaus Kleiner Meierhof
Wildschweine or wild boar are ferocious, but fortunately they aren't commonly seen as they forage for their food in the forest at night. They are abundant in the forest areas of Germany. Local Gasthauses advertise it on various weekends in late fall and winter, with reservations generally necessary. We hear the hunters near us on many weekends throughout the hunting season. For adult males and females the season is from mid June until the end of January; for young boar, it is all year. Wildschweine are prevalent everywhere, thus the reason for a long season.
