National Park

Alpirsbach has the great fortune not only to be located in the middle of one of the largest nature parks in Germany, but also to border the only national park in Baden-Württemberg. These parks preserve the incredibly diverse flora and fauna of the Black Forest. They are the habitat of native rarities such as the black woodpecker, the lynx and the primeval forest relict beetle, as well as countless species of fungi. Steep granite rocks, dark forest lakes and mighty firs form a unique combination with lush orchards, lush green pastures and cultivated farmland. Here you will experience more outdoors than almost anywhere else!
