Ranger hike in Na­tion­al park Eifel

The Eifel-mis­sion: I had to find the largest pred­at­or in the park, a typ­ic­al ed­ible mush­room and the "Hirschley".

Just by the Bel­gian bor­der with Ger­many, there?s an awe­some na­tion­al park which serves as a per­fect week­end get­away: Eifel Na­tion­al Park. I went for a walk with ranger Sasha, and he thought me a lot about fauna and flora in the park.

At the end of the walk, you get a great view over the Rursee, one of the biggest lake reser­voirs in Ger­many. This lake was cre­ated to pre­vent flood­ing in the Eifel area and it?s also the biggest source for drink­ing wa­ter and elec­tri­city. Today it?s also a great re­cre­ation spot: you can swim in the lake or rent a boat!
