Large parts of the Birkenfelder Land are dedicated to the idea of “letting nature be nature”: Opened in 2015, Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park is Germany’s 16th national park.
Discover mysterious hanging bogs, ancient beech trees on rocky stone runs and large stretches of forest where encounters with people are seldom.
Rare animal and plant species such as ospreys and black storks, dragonflies and orchids are indigenous to this region. It is essential to protect them and preserve their habitat.
The Nationalparkamt Hunsrück-Hochwald.authority provides extensive information on this nature reserve.
