Nature Preserves in Germany
National preserves maintain and develop nature and landscape with and for people. Such parks are huge areas, consisting predominantly of protected landscape and nature areas which are simultaneously suited for recreation and experiencing nature. They combine the protection and the use of nature and landscape.
Thus they seek to establish balance between healthy and intact nature, economic success, and quality of life. This makes nature preserves a model for an entire and sustainable development of rural areas.In the Federal Republic of Germany there are more than 100 natural parks.
