The Kellerwald-Edersee National Park, home to vast beech forests, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Water babies and nature lovers are sure to be in their element thanks to Lake Edersee and the beautiful mountain scenery.

The Kellerwald-Edersee National Park in northern Hesse is one of the most popular holiday destinations within the region. Covering a length of 27 kilometres, the crystal-clear waters of Lake Edersee provide the perfect conditions for swimming, sailing and fishing. It is surrounded by more than 50 hills covered by beech trees that are part of the Ancient Beech Forests of Germany UNESCO World Heritage Site. The well-signposted walking routes lead visitors to idyllic brook valleys, dramatic gorges, ancient trees and rare flowers. The Edersee Forest Walk takes visitors even further into the depths of the national park, showing off its wild and untamed side.
