Nature – a Treasure for Us to Know, Appreciate, Enjoy and Protect

Millions of years ago the Altmühltal Nature Park was a tropical lagoon. Its landscape has been shaped by primeval forces, weathered and changed into its actual aspect, into a land, which has never failed to attract people with its charm.

Nowadays this region is widely known especially as a cyclist's and hiker's paradise. Here in the Altmühltal Nature Park a principle has always been respected: "Enjoy nature – but only moving along certain paths always in harmony with nature, the region's landscapes and its animal and plant life". All of us gladly protect what we know and appreciate – this is a truth generally acknowledged. That's why the park's environmental centres regularly organise guided excursions and tours on environmental issues. But you can also discover nature and culture on your own, in the Altmühltal Nature Park, for instance on the many educational trails with different themes or on trips and excursions to the countless nature beauties of the region.
