The Bavarian Forest National Park is one of the best places to enjoy nature and wildlife. It is also a great spot to train your photography skills. You'll be surprised by the quantity of animals and birds living here. Brown bears, boars, wolves, wisent (European bison), lynx, wildcats, and a variety of bird species await you here. Some of the rarest bird species are white-backed or three-toed woodpeckers and pygmy owls.
