Vom Wald das Beste. – Nationalparkregion Bayerischer Wald

Books from the vacation region

Where can you find a more beautiful backdrop for a book than in the region around the Bavarian Forest National Park?

Characterized by a harsh past, fascinating and mystical, it lets you immerse yourself in a unique, wonderful world of nature and strong characters. The local authors and photographers put their heart and soul into bringing the value of this nature and fauna to the minds and hearts of the readers and are deeply rooted in it.

This precious piece of earth, so worthy of protection, belongs to a "species" that must be preserved!

And if you can't be here, then simply immerse yourself in this fragile, impressive world with the region's books!

Books with a national park theme

We do not want to withhold the numerous book publications dealing with the Bavarian Forest National Park from the "Woid & Nature Lovers".

Whether it's a non-fiction book on the creation and philosophy of the oldest national park in Germany or an impressive illustrated book. There is something for everyone here.

A few examples:

  • "Let nature be nature" by the first head of the national park administration Hans Bibelriether
  • "The beauty of the moment" by Robert Krieger
  • "The Bavarian Forest National Park" by Dr. Fanz Leibl
  • "Wilder Wald - Europe's pioneer for the forests of the future" by Alexandra von Poschinger
  • "The Wild 16" children's and adult book by Thomas Michler
  • "Between wood and stone - life on the Bavarian-Bohemian border" by Lukas Haselberger

Note: In view of the countless literary publications on the Bavarian Forest region, we make no claim to a complete presentation of all authors and published works.

We would just like to mention a few of the fascinating books here and encourage you to browse through them yourself.
Or even better: come to the Bavarian Forest National Park vacation region and discover this enchanting world for yourself, with all your senses. Immerse yourself in the world of "book scenery"!

You can also conveniently order some of the copies here in our online store (there are currently no plans to add any more books to our store).
