Experience the fascinating forest wilderness of the Nationalparkzentrum Lusen
in the Hans-Eisenmann-Haus Visitor Centre, its animals in their natural environment in the animal reserve
and its plants and rocks - right by the Treetop Walk.
Game reserve - a nature trip for the whole family
16 large enclosures and aviaries have been built in the diverse forest landscape on the edges of the National Park. Currently and formerly indigenous animals, such as lynx, bison and brown bears, are housed in extensive enclosures in our animal reserve.
You can learn about the geology of the region in the geological exhibition, or discover the diversity of the indigenous forest plants in all seasons in our botanical exhibition.
Combine your Treetop Walk visit with a trip to the animal, botanical and geological reserves in the Bavarian Forest National Park.
Admission is free.
The Visitor Centre provides information about all the activities available in the Bavarian Forest National Park.
Trained staff and modern information stations offer tips for your excursion as well as advice for planning your holiday in the National Park region. There’s also an exciting film programme with films about the National Park,

The forest workshop, an environmental educational experience space for families with children and young people as well as school classes, has been located in the Hans-Eisenmann-Haus since August 2020.
