National Parks in the Rhine Valley

National parks in the Rhine region countries match the great river in beauty and majesty. Mountainous landscapes, the inimitable river valley, expansive forests and all the flora and fauna you would expect to call this wonderland home are a must-see in this history-rich region of Europe.

The Eifel National Park in Germany is the best place to go to see the Rhine up close in its watery wonder, alongside endless forest and enchanting towns and castles. Majestic beech forests sweep across the park, interspersed with gnarled oak woods and secret ravines with babbling brooks. You can explore the national park independently, or let the experts show you around. On "Ancient Forest Days", rangers give guided tours of the park, revealing some of nature's secrets. The well-equipped visitor centre, set in the charming hydrotherapy health resort of Gemünd on the edge of the Eifel National Park, offers a variety of interesting activities and exhibitions for every age group.
