Who wants to go to the wilderness? Who is brave enough?!

Children with and without disabilities can experience the National Park’s natural environment in their own way and with all their senses. Families with children can take part in a free tour on a Family Day, or can book a private family tour.

Family Days take place every first Sunday of the month (and more often during the holidays) in the National Park. Children are the focus of the free tour. At certain points in the year there are also “Children guide children” events where junior rangers offer free family tours for children and their families.

We would love to arrange a fun, active programme just for you on your desired date and at your desired meeting point. You can book this individual family tour with a forest guide – perhaps for a child’s birthday – for a small fee.

Each year, children and young people between the ages of seven and 15 experience an adventure in the forest and around the campfire in North Rhine-Westphalia during the summer holidays. Parents can register their children in January for the wilderness camps on the land of the Wildniswerkstatt Düttling.

Your child wants more – more outdoors, more wilderness, more knowledge?

The junior ranger programme teaches young nature lovers lots about nature and the wilderness and the life within across a whole year. It begins after the summer holidays and sees 30 new children between seven and 12 years take their first steps through the wild nature of the north Eifel with National Park rangers.

Even young children can find interesting information about animals and plants, try out experiments, do new crafts or have a go at the National Park quiz before their visit on (only in german).
