Nature in North Rhine-Westphalia

Your Natural Experience

Green, greener, North Rhine-Westphalia: Much more than half of the land in the German federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia contains forests, rivers, meadows and fields, with the state's multitude of nature parks and reserves and the Eifel National Park covering nearly 40 percent of its overall area. In this green location, you can meet wild flamingos and clacking storks, admire craggy cliff formations and newly flourishing forest landscapes and experience the "Rhine romanticism" whilst enjoying stunning views of what is surely the most romantic river in the world. Come and discover a side of North Rhine-Westphalia that will truly surprise you!
