Hainich National Park: Forest from Above

06.07.2016

2000 years ago, nature in Germany looked completely different- beech trees dominated the landscape between northern Germany and the Alps. Today, only small areas remain. One of these is the Hainich National Park in Thuringia, home to wild animals and many plant species. You can come especially close to them on a path almost 24 meters high, allowing you to walk above and through the highest part of the trees. You can go even higher up with the tower where you can see this forest from 44 meters above and take a look at how Germany looked once upon a time.
