From north to south – Germany's wild nature
BERCHTESGADEN NATIONAL PARK
Our first highlight is Berchtesgaden National Park in southern Germany. It's one of the oldest protected areas in the Alps, and its marked trails lead walkers along the mountains and through lush green forests with gurgling streams of crystal clear water.
Another must-see in the Berchtesgadener Land region is Wimbach Gorge, where a stream rises to the surface and drops into the narrow ravine in a series of waterfalls. The bridges and footpaths along the steep crags make for an exciting gorge walk.
And on we go – @deepwildphoto also visited the area around Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The region is famous for Germany's highest peak, Mount Zugspitze.
Where there are mountains, there are ravines. And there's a great one to see here – Partnach Gorge. Another adventure in nature awaits as you make your way along the footpaths and wooden bridges past waterfalls and through lush forests.
LAKE EIBSEEBut it's not all about thundering waterfalls – beautiful calm waters such as Lake Eibsee offer an opportunity to unwind after your exciting excursions.
Far up in north-east Germany lies another gem, Western-Pomeranian Boddenlandschaft National Park. Here you'll discover a landscape of coastal cliffs and endless dunes, amazing lagoons and tranquil forests – the perfect destination for anyone who loves beaches or woodland.
The national park is a real treasure and home to a wide range of animals which thrive in this protected area. Observing the animals in their natural environment is a real treat – just make sure to show them respect and keep your distance. You can get up closer with your camera, as @deepwildphoto does here. ;)
We look forward to your visit!
