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.

If you still have any improvement suggestions, please contact us using the following email address: pressestelle[at]nlp.bwl.de

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 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 in 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 at weekends.

Gelebte Inklusion

Barrierefreiheit von Information, in der Kommunikation und baulichen Beschaffenheit ist die Voraussetzung für einen inklusiven Bildungsansatz. Wir versetzen keine Berge aber wir schaffen Stück für Stück Verständnis, für ein gemeinsames Miteinander!
