In the information points in the towns and villages close to the national park holidaymakers can obtain initial information and personally-tailored advice about the national park and the varied opportunities offered.

Facilities in the parishes around the national park
Together with the towns and villages around the national park we offer our visitors many attractive facilities. Here are some examples:
In the Wanderpark in Bayerisch Eisenstein the “Gallery of Forest Spirits" is particularly impressive and comical. A small stream bubbles out of an artificially constructed well, which feeds a “village pond" and a natural Kneipp facility with fresh water.
The deer enclosure in Scheuereck is worth a visit at any time of the year! Particularly exciting is the rutting season, which usually reaches its highpoint at the end of September / beginning of October.
Taking the well-known stork steps through the natural Kneipp hydrotherapy facility in Spiegelau is a refreshing experience. The water, having gushed down from the Rachel and mountain mires, provides an experience that is now also available to people with disabilities.
In line with the motto “Understanding nature playfully" the forest playground in Spiegelau provides a playing and nature experience for the whole family. In this 50 hectare, park-like wooded area, there are playgrounds, a nature experience path and a meadow with barbecue facilities waiting for you.
If you want to hike on the trail of the lynx then the place to be is the recently created “lynx path" of the villages of Bayerisch Eisenstein and Lindberg.
The fairytale landscape of the mountain village of Waldhäuser inspired the works of painters and artists at the beginning of the last century. Traces of historic and contemporary art around the Lusen are connected by the Ark Path.
