Nationalpark Eifel

In order to provide a high-quality programme, the Eifel National Park Forestry Office cooperates closely with experts and institutions such as those of the Rhineland Regional Council (LVR). Through joint projects and training programmes, the home for the deaf in Euskirchen, the Louis Braille school for the blind in Düren and the Anna Freud school in Cologne support the development of fully accessible programmes. Lebenshilfe in Euskirchen and Lebenshilfe in Düren (branches of Lebenshilfe, a German federal association for people with intellectual disabilities) have also given us valuable help in producing information in simple language.

Valuable tips and the experiences of various associations (the German association for the hard of hearing Deutscher Schwerhörigenbund, the North Rhine-Westphalian association for the deaf Landesverband der Gehörlosen, the association of senior citizens BRH Seniorenverband BRH, and the association for the blind and partially sighted Blinden- und Sehbehindertenverband), as well as contributions from the disabled persons advisory committees and commissioners for the disabled of the District of Düren and the District of Euskirchen have also helped with the development of the barrier-free nature experience park.

A key partner in the region is also the German-Belgian Hohes Venn-Eifel Nature Park, which surrounds the National Park. The Nature Park is in charge of the "Barrier-free Eifel" and "Barrier-free Rureifel" projects.

Many of the projects also enjoy the support of the German "tourism for all" organisation (NatKo).
