Eifel National Park
The Eifel national park, founded in 2004 and boasting a 110 square kilometre area, is still a national park “in development”. Only after 30 years does a protected area of this type meet the criteria of a national park. Despite this, even now there are different rare animals such as the black stork, eagle owls, wildcats that call the Eifel National Park home. Discover the region by yourself or have a specialist ranger guide you around.
