Nature conservation has a long tradition in the Eifel. Therefore you will be able to observe many rare animal and plant species in the Vulkaneifel, the Rureifel, the Nordeifel or in the High Fens during your holiday. Travelling in spring, you can hike through the river valleys of the Nordeifel and Rureifel and admire the impressive sea of blossoms presented by the wild, yellow narcissus or the largest continuous wild garlic region in Europe. Early summer is also a good time for nature holidays in the Eifel. The splendour of the blossoms of the semi-arid limestone Eifel does not only make a holidaying botatanist's eyes light up with joy thanks to the rare species of orchids and gentians. No less colourful are the golden yellow blossoms of the broom, also called "Eifelgold", which light up the hillsides of the Vulkaneifel - an unforgettable holiday experience.  A holiday in autumn offers a special type of nature experience; a view over the unmistakable rust-orange moor grass shimmering in the High Fens.
