About us


The Bavarian Forest National Park, founded in 1970, is located in eastern Lower Bavaria at the border to the Czech Republic. The protected area is managed by the Bavarian Forest National Park Administration, an authority of the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Consumer Protection. In this section of the website, you can find basic information about the administration of Germany’s oldest national park.

Furthermore, you will find all necessary contact details as well as our organizational chart in the contact persons section. Information for journalists is collected in the menu item Press.
