Across the world visitor centres are the first ports of call in, and thus important parts, of national parks. They are often the first opportunity for visitors to gain information and contact with the park.

The Hans-Eisenmann-Haus is named after the former State Minister for Food, Agriculture and Forests, Dr Hans Eisenmann (1923 – 1987).

At the information counter at the entrance expert staff are expecting you, and they will be able to inform you about what the Bavarian Forest National Park has to offer, as well as advise you on how you can best plan your holiday in the national park region.

The Hans Eisenmann Haus was renovated in 2010 and its exhibits and displays now have a new gloss and clarity.

The foyer area is where things start. In addition to the modern information media there is a pleasant rest area with places to sit and also a national park shop run by the Bund Naturschutz Service GmbH.

The new modern exhibition “Ways into nature" tells the story of the Bavarian Forest National Park: “A history of forest and people".

A small cafeteria, the Café Eisenmann, with its two comfortable outside terraces and an attractive guest room invites visitors to stay a while.

The in-house library offers an ideal place to browse in a comfortable atmosphere. The visitor centre is situated very close to the tree top path.

A comprehensive service for children and schools completes our range of products in the Hans Eisenmann House visitor centre.

We look forward to your visit!
