Programmes for children, families, youth groups and classes

Wilderness Workshop in Düttling

A wilderness adventure for old and young - that is what the Wilderness Workshop in Düttling has to offer. One thing the staff at this fully accessible educational establishment do is organise the family days-out, junior rangers scheme, taster tours, etc. This area of around 100 hectares of forest and meadows is however also a magnet for adventurous school classes and children's and youth groups wishing to take part in project days and Wilderness Camps. You will also find comprehensive information on these activities in the leaflet (in German) that can be downloaded below. It includes contact details for the nearby National Park Guest House. You can find out how to get here under meeting points.
The Wilderness Workshop is located on the eastern edge of the National Park, between Heimbach-Hergarten and Heimbach-Düttling. Its 100 hectares of forest and meadows are reserved for young people with or without disabilities.
During project days and Wilderness Camps, the groups focus on "the wilderness", working closely with National Park rangers. Away from the designated hiking trails in the National Park, children and teenagers will find the tranquillity necessary for shared experiences of nature that will leave a lasting impression. A forest shelter serves as a resting place for lunch and a starting point for the projects of the day. If required, the seminar room at the forester's lodge on the edge of the forest in Düttling can also be used. This is also where you will find the fully accessible toilet facilities.

Staff at the Wilderness Workshop will be happy to adjust their programme to meet the needs of children and young people of limited mobility or those with visual, hearing or learning impairments.
