Please pay attention to temporary forest closures and suggested diversions.
Due to acute bark beetle infestation, the stability of dead spruces has considerably decreased. In the entire National Park area, there is a very high risk due to dead trees and collapsing deadwood on many paths. Especially in the rear part of the National Park, there are paths which are currently impassable.
