Hainich National Park
The Hainich National Park is one of the largest, untouched forest habitats in Germany. Since June 2011, it has been a UNESCO World Heritage site! You can visit us at any time of the year. The Hainich Park will always have something special for you.
In spring, there are the carpets of wild garlic, in summer rare orchids, in autumn there is mushroom season and in winter, Mother Hulda covers everything in white snow. Go for a tour of discovery and become a Junior Ranger. Experience the mystic world of the “Wildcat Children’s Forest”, an extraordinary adventure playground with spider web, labyrinth and ramified mausoleum. Climb the lookout tower “General’s View“ and look through a telescope into the wide world from a height of 20 metres. And if it should rain you can still visit our National Park Centre. There you can explore the exhibition “Discover the secrets of Hainich“ with its story-telling eggs, the multivision platform, the Trial Canopy Walkway and much more!
