Wölfin “Luna” lives in the Sassnitz animal park: she is the eye-catcher for the holiday on Rügen.

She sharpens her ears and closely observes her territory in the animal park Sassnitz – Wolf Luna is the last of her kind on the island of Rügen. The Private Palace Hotels in Binz have taken over the sponsorship of the animal – it is already the third. “First we took care of the White Deer Heino, then about Wolf Kuno. After he died, we accepted the sponsorship for Wolf Luna “, explains Simone Zoble of the Private Palace Hotels in Binz on the island of Rügen. “The Sassnitz Zoo is a popular excursion destination for many families – and since we are a family business, this is a great fit.”

Animal Park Sassnitz – perfect for a holiday on Rügen

Animal Park director Kerstin Schulz nods at these words and smiles: “The Dr. Hutter Hotels and our animal park have been connecting a close relationship for years . We can always rely on each other. I thank the Private Palace Hotels in Binz for their loyalty and support. ”

When Kerstin Schulz tells a few anecdotes, Wolfin Luna seems to listen exactly. She picks up the ears again and looks at the animal park manager. Wolfin Luna was born in the year 2005 in the animal Park Sassnitz – converted into human years, the lady is now over 90 years. “Luna is still very shy-who wants to photograph, he must bring patience,” explains Kerstin Schulz.

Wolf Luna – One of the highlights for a holiday on the Baltic Sea

In the coming months there are major changes in the Sassnitz animal Park. “Our zoo is being rebuilt. We will give up the wolf attitude – it no longer fits into our new concept. Our focus is on animals of the island – and wolves are not part of it, “says the 50-year-old. “We tried to accommodate Luna in a different animal park-no chance. That’s why we decided to take care of them for so long, until one day they fall asleep. Luna will be the last wolf on Rügen. And what strikes us: Luna enjoys her single life after her partner Kuno died in the spring. ”

The remodelling of the Sassnitz Park is unanimously welcomed by travelers and locals alike. “We get one of the most modern facilities – it is a huge project for which we have fought for years,” says Kerstin Schulz, who is already inviting all holidaymakers and Rüganer to the Great Apple Festival on October 15th (12 p.m. to 7 p.m.). “The whole city is supposed to be a big Apple – it’s almost our season closing, after which the conversion work begins in the animal park.”
