Heim­bach na­tion­al park gate


The Heim­bach 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.

The exhibition in the Heimbach national park gate unlocks “Forest secrets” (“Waldgeheimnisse”). An audio play leads guests through a forest labyrinth. The leading animal in the house, the wild cat, chats with a black stork about her experiences in the national park.
