Dune valleys and dune pastures
Rare plants and animals live in this astonishing dune landscape. The flowery dune pastures are of such high nature value that the park is part of the European nature network Natura 2000.
The Parnassia is blooming, the Niobe Fritillary is fluttering, Burgundy snails are hiding and nightingales and woodlarks are singing. Spread over the park, are large grazers such as Scottish Highlanders, Polish primitive horses, fallow-deer and herds of Wisent. With the introduction of the Wisent, the last wild bison of Europe, the area is made rougher in a practical manner.
The network of biking and hiking routes take you to different dune lakes, wide views and several war monuments.
Go wisent spotting
Wisents are also called European bison and justifiably belong to 'Europe’s Big 5'. Walk to the Wisent Lookout Point or hike on the trail that goes through the wisent area, marked with yellow posts.Read more
