Sternenpark Nationalpark Eifel - Zauberhafter Nachthimmel

Schleiden

With its star-filled night sky, Eifel National Park is qualified as a Dark Sky Park. This large protected area obtained the significant recognition of the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA). The Eifel National Park region is one of the few locations in Germany where it is possible to see the Milky Way with the naked eye.

In addition to providing a nocturnal nature experience, the reduction of light pollution also protects nature and species diversity. Bats, migrating birds and many other animals benefit from the protected night sky. The next step is to develop the Dark Sky Park into a Dark Sky Reserve. In addition to strict protection of the National Park against light pollution, the Reserve will also include a surrounding buffer zone of some 15 kilometres beyond the Park boundary.

For visitors to experience the night sky, the ‘stars without boundaries’ astronomy workshop offers regular german und english events at the Vogelsang observatory premises. The events are held only when the weather is clear.

It is a journey back in time to the world of the cloth industry. In 1961, factory owner Kurt Müller closed the doors of his cloth factory in the Eifel, hoping to reopen it soon. This did not come true, but today visitors can take a unique tour of a factory where robust woollen fabrics and loden cloth were produced for many years. They are immersed in the world of dyeing and weaving and experience how some of the machines are brought back to life during a guided tour and how people used to work here.
