Eifel National Parkå

Water, woodlands and wildlife – Eifel National Park displays nature at its glorious best. In 2004, the harvesting of natural resources like timber and crops came to an end in North Rhine-Westphalia’s first and so far only national park. Since then, the forest has been allowed to return to its original state, just like it would have appeared centuries ago. As a result, over 2,300 endangered animal and plant species have re-established themselves in the region, making it a paradise for admirers of nature at its untamed best. Covering an area of around 110 km2, the national park offers visitors the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the shy wild cat, or maybe hear the low rutting call of the stag in autumn or the clattering of the rare black stork.
