Naturparke - these are large-scale landscapes whose special character and beauty are of outstanding importance and whose value must be preserved. And not just for nature conservation reasons.
Naturparke should develop into model landscapes and be regions of sustainable development and education.
As large-scale protected areas, they were created to maintain, develop or restore the landscape, which is characterized by diverse uses, to preserve its species and biotope diversity - always with and for people. Naturparke combine protection and use, offer nature-friendly recreational opportunities and thus support the development typical of the region. With the development of natural tourism offers, they also form a sustainable economic factor.
Added value and a regionally typical development in Naturparken strengthen the homeland, quality of life and regional identity. Educational offers help to experience, explain, appreciate and protect nature. Sustainable land use and landscape management protect biological diversity and its valuable resources. Natural and cultural landscapes are preserved in their diversity and beauty and have the opportunity to develop further.
In Germany there are currently 103 Naturparke. With a total area of over 10,1 million hectares, these cover around 28,4% of Germany's area.
