Land­scapes & 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!
