Walking in the National Park

The National Park is home to a total of 240 kilometres of walking trails. The National Park Authority has marked all paths with wooden signposts and the routes are on display on the welcome boards at the entrances to the National Park. Wooden posts combine with the signposts to point the way on the paths on the Dreiborn Plateau.

Walking trails for people with and without an impairment can be found in the barrier-free Wilder Kermeter natural adventure area with the “Wilder Weg” (The Wild Way) nature discovery trail.

Please follow the rules of the National Park and only walk on designated paths. Restricting walking to paths is the only way to allow animals and plants in the sanctuary areas to develop without disturbance. This ruling represents a vital compromise between conservation and exploring nature. Both are key objectives of a National Park!

The National Park hiking map allows you to plan your own individual walks. If you want to follow an existing tour, you can follow a signposted theme tour round walk, the Wilderness Trail or the Creation Trail.

Our digital route planner is the best place to look: it contains information about suggested tours, destinations, accommodation and events.

We are not just here for you online; we are also there for you in the National Park: the staff at the National Park gates and information points and the Vogelsang visitor centre are all happy to help!
