Barrier-free among nature and online

Our goal is to make the Black Forest National Park easily accessible to all. That also applies to this website. Every effort has been made to include as few barriers as possible. Our new Website was realized according to the guidelines of the Regulation of establishing barrier-free information technology. It complies with the web accessibility guidelines of the German BITV ordinance.

Auszeichnung für DGS-Projekt

Im April 2019 wurde das Projekt „DGS-Wildnisübernachtung im Nationalpark Schwarzwald“ als offizielles Projekt der UN-Dekade Biologische Vielfalt ausgezeichnet.

Die Auszeichnung überreichte Stephanie Aeffner, die Beauftragte für die Belange von Menschen mit Behinderung des Landes Baden-Württemberg.

Auszeichnung für barrierefreien Service

Ob Führungen in Gebärdensprache, barrierefreie bauliche Maßnahmen oder Online-Angebote in leichter Sprache - der Nationalpark Schwarzwald ist sich seiner Rolle als Mitgestalter einer barrierefreien Gesellschaft bewusst und nimmt diese sehr ernst. Dieses Engagement wird von der Lebenshilfe Offenburg-Oberkirch honoriert - am Donnerstag,  16. November 2017, verlieh der Verein dem Nationalparkteam im großen Sitzungssaal des Landratsamtes Offenburg das Prädikat "unbehindert miteinander“.

Auch in Zukunft wird der Nationalpark seine Bemühungen zum Abbau von Barrieren weiter verstärken - sowohl bei Kleinigkeiten, wie der Auswahl der Jahresprogramm-Veranstaltungen, als auch bei Meilensteinen, wie der Planung der Infrastruktur.

Wheelchair access to the National Park Centre

At present, the safest barrier-free way to get to the centre is with your own car. We are, however, currently investigating barrier-free connections with public transport – to and from the Ruhestein and to the Black Forest National Park region. We will inform you here as soon as more definite information is available.

The National Park Centre at the Ruhestein is housed in an old, 20th Century building and is unfortunately not completely barrier-free. If you ring the bell however, you will be helped up the front steps. The exhibition on the ground floor is barrier-free and a barrier-free toilet can be found here too. 
Furthermore, a barrier-free toilet is located in the Nature Park Shop in Bühlertal which is open during normal business hours but not on weekends.
