“A narcissus frenzy and the changing forest”

“A narcissus frenzy and the changing forest” – this is the name of the exhibition at the Höfen National Park gate. Large depictions of wild narcissus create a special atmosphere – you can see thousands of these right by the gate in the spring. They are still surrounded by conifers from when the forest was used commercially – these trees are gradually being replaced by a natural mixed deciduous forest. Audio, fragrant and tactile stations make this exhibition an experience for all the senses. Free entry.

  • Tourist Information
  • “Narzissenrausch und Waldwandel” (A narcissus frenzy and the changing forest) exhibition
