North Eifel Nature Park
The German - Belgian Nature Park with the North Eifel Nature Park extends across an area of 2.700 square kilometres in North Rhine Westphalia, Rheinland-Pfalz, and eastern Belgium. The landscapes are of unique diversity: the moorland in Belgium “Hohes Venn”, rivers, streams and 15 lakes and reservoirs, the colourful diversity of species in the “Kalkeifel” (limestone Eifel), and the wide and densely wooded mountain heights of the “Hocheifel”. The Eifel National Park is located in the centre of the German - Belgian Nature Park and is the only National Park in North Rhine Westphalia.
With the slogan “Eifel - Lust auf Natur” (Eifel - desire for nature) perfect opportunities for hiking, cycling, and being active in nature are provided. During all activities you will come across witnesses of the history of the Eifel: Caves from the Stone Age, outstanding buildings of the Romans such as the Roman Aqueduct, more than 100 castles, palaces, and monasteries, or the valuable remains of the west rampart. The “main attraction” is the impressive natural landscape with a colourful flora and fauna.
In cooperation with many dedicated partners of the German - Belgian Nature Park, the Eifel has evolved into one of the most famous nature adventure regions in Germany. Innovative projects connect to the traditions and values of the Eifel through the works of the Nature Park.
