UNESCO-Biosphere reserves – man and nature in harmony

They are areas of great scenic beauty and they also have a mission: Germany's 15 UNESCO-biosphere reserves show how man and nature can coexist in harmony. As you wander through secluded alpine pastures and traditional villages, through romantic vineyards and picturesque orchards, you'll experience this harmony for yourself. You won't just be at one with nature. You'll be at one with yourself.

The biosphere reserve straddling the German-French border is marked by diverse mixed forests, towering rocks and romantic castle ruins – and the contrast between miles of forest and the open spaces of the wine-growing country.
