"We're doing really well here!" or "We live where others go on holiday!" or "Here we have nature right on our doorstep!" - Sentences that have often been spoken, but get a special meaning during the Corona crisis. The magnificent landscape and the wonderful Wittgenstein forests enable the residents to use and, above all, to appreciate this natural space. BLB-Tourismus GmbH, Wittgenstein Berleburg'sche Rentkammer and the town of Bad Berleburg jointly promote these precious advantages of our region and the positive sides of this natural paradise: "The recreation centre 'Forest' is open 24/7. Admission is free and the landscape is freely accessible. There is no age restriction. In this unique luxury property, every young and old visitor will surely find his or her personal nature spot."
The nature of Wittgenstein with all its facets is and remains a real paradise. Hikers, sportsmen, families, walkers, mountain bikers - they can all move freely here and experience personal landscape moments. But please do not forget one thing: In Wittgenstein, this recreation centre is mostly privately owned or belongs to the municipality. The owners may even live off the forest. Visitors should also remember this when normality has returned to everyday life.
And it is also clear - there are rules for the use of the recreation centre:
Respect and distance in encounters with game whose habitat is the forest!
Tolerance towards people visiting the recreation centre at the same time!
Understanding for short-term closures, which usually have forestry reasons!
Acceptance of regulations that protect animals and plants!
Friendliness towards the people who work in the forest and live from it!
Consideration for the environment when dealing with rubbish!
Observance of signposting and routing!
Prohibition of smoking and fires in the forest!
Show appreciation for private owners and the community who look after nature!
Always take the instructions seriously and follow them!
Observe the current contact ban and the minimum distance of 1.50 metres!
