    Why Go There?

    Daily 9:30 - 18:00 (reduced opening hours in winter)

    Visit the National Park Information Centre Falkenstein and learn all about the Bavarian Forest - Germany's oldest National Park. It's a great destination for the whole familiy - in summer but also in winter.

    The Bavaria Forest National Park directly on the border with the Czech Republic was founded in 1970 and was the first National Park in Germany. Within this vast stretch of land the possibilites are endless. For those who love nature and adventure - this is the best place to be. 

    Discover the “Haus zur Wildnis” visitor centre, the animal enclosures and the Stone Age cave. The animal enclosures are open throughout the year and are always accessible. Maybe you're lucky and see owls or a Lynx.

    Several exhibitions, a large 3D cinema, a playroom, a shop and a restaurant await guests in the visitor centre. The entrance is free!

    The nature left to themselves - this is the philosophy of all German National Parks. Visitors are welcome - if they play by the rules: Please stay on marked trails and do not bother the animals!

    There are over 300 km of clearly-marked hiking trails navigating the fascinating forest. Experienced hikers can explore even more tempting places by taking the special experience trails. These trails will enchant you with giant trees, babbling streams, the smell of mushrooms and decaying wood, as well as the coolness of the moss on the forest floor. Another option is to take a bike ride through the park. Along the way, you will not only admire nature, but also may encounter a wide variety of animals.

    If you are interested in learning even more about the park to enhance your experience, you can book a guided tour with a trained forest guide. You will be amazed, what you can find.
