Learn­ing from nature

Nat­ur­ally Clev­er

From king­fish­ers to fire sala­man­ders, from wild straw­ber­ries to cuckoo­flowers and from reser­voirs to stalac­tite caves – North Rhine-West­phalia is abound­ing with nature in all its vari­ety. Ad­mir­ing the beau­ti­ful views is re­ward­ing in it­self, but it is even bet­ter to get a more up-close and per­son­al ex­per­i­ence of nature. This is pos­sible on a ranger tour or in a “wil­der­ness work­shop”, where you can learn more about loc­al flora and fauna and be­ne­fit from the in-depth know­ledge of ex­perts. You are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to dis­cov­er­ing the won­ders of nature in your North Rhine-West­phalia!

Wild­wald Voss­winkel

Stalk through the woods and ob­serve wild boar and badgers, or build your own shel­ter in the wil­der­ness - all this and more is pos­sible in the Wild­wald Voss­winkel forest.
