The Visitor Center of the Kellerwald National Park

The visitor center of Hesse’s only national park invites you to discover the secrets of the Kellerwald-Edersee National Park.

The exhibition ‘BaumTraum’ (Tree Dream) is devoted to the topic of ‘wilderness’. Wilderness is defined as a self-contained nature that is able to develop without any human influence.

Let yourself be surprised by extraordinary perspectives, exhibits for turning, pushing, sliding and cranking, as well as a unique 4D sensory movie. The exhibition takes you into the wilderness and reveals to you many little secrets about the National Park’s beech forests.

The exhibition is divided into three areas: the ‘UrSchätze der Wildnis’ (Primal Treasures of the Wilderness), das ‘WaldWerk’ (Forest Works); this part of the exposition consists of interactive exhibits that convey unusual insights into to wilderness of the Kellerwald, and the ‘4D-SinneKino’ (4D Sensory Cinema), where visitors are shown a unique movie that explains the ever-changing wilderness)!
