Germanys first National Park was founded in 1970 on the border to Czech Republic and forms together with the Sumava National Park one of the biggest contiguous forests in Europe. Small mountains, little streams and vast areas of woodlands covered in moss built a perfect place for endangered species. Not far away from where I live I asked myself why I haven’t been there before. It is a mystic place full of wonders. Sadly it began to rain, followed by a snowstorm and I finally bailed. But I will come back for sure. With so much oppertunities for photography and hiking this place is just amazing.
