Understanding nature in the Environmental Education Centre

Learning in the national park? How boring. That's what you think! Here, at the northern edge of Hainich National Park, we have a proper research station for children.

In the Umweltbildungsstation (UBiS), our Environmental Education Centre, you can experience nature with all your senses. It is very popular with schools, kindergartens and young researchers.

National park staff have converted the former military garage with lots of initiative and attention to detail. Wooden beams, walls with animal tracks and real fossils, a wild wooden gallery and a dark wildcat labyrinth below – everything is homebuilt and made of natural material and Hainich timber. In this environment, you will discover that learning can be fun.
