The Bavarian Forest Nature Park stretches from the Danube Valley to the Grosser Arber peak near the border with the Czech Republic and Austria.

This exceptional nature park covers the area from the Danube Valley to the Arber peaks with their areas of primeval woodland, including the fruit-growing areas near Lalling and Neukirchen. Visitors can experience "Europe's Green Canopy" at events run by staff at the nature park or on their own journeys of discovery. A few dozen nature experience trails reveal many of nature's secrets to the curious explorer. A visit to one of the nature park's six information centres also comes highly recommended. For example, there's the Nature Park Sonnenhaus in Zwiesel, which is built from renewable resources, and the Eisenstein Border Railway Station, which hosts five interactive exhibitions.
