Gemünd na­tion­al park gate


Schleiden

The Gemünd na­tion­al park gate is an in­form­a­tion centre that com­bines tour­ist in­form­a­tion with an ex­hib­i­tion about the Eifel na­tion­al park.

National park gates are the best places to start any visit to the national park. They are information centres that combine tourist information and different exhibitions on national park-related topics. On digital models of the site, visitors can gain a first impression, while the national park film is a good introduction before entering the park. The staff at the national park gates will be happy to give tips about hikes and events.

“Gnarled oaks, colourful woodpeckers and exciting forest tales” are presented in the exhibition at the Gemünd national park gate. The focal theme is the oak woods directly next to the gate with their special plants and animals. Among other things, a charcoal kiln that is open for viewing is a testament to the use of the forest in days gone by. The view of the Eifel from the Kreuzberg hill offers a first impression of the area around the gate.
