Experience the primeval forest

In the area around the Gro?er Falkenstein protected areas came into being a very long time in the past, in places more than 200 years ago, and which are today among the most important and oldest remnants of primeval forest in central Europe. For visitors to the national park they can be counted amongst the big attractions alongside the mountain summits and the pastures (Schachten) in the north western part of the national park. They are connected by particularly attractive hiking trails.
