The KÖNIGSSTUHL National Park Centre with the affiliated UNESCO World Heritage Forum is the central contact point for all people who want to visit the Jasmund National Park, the World Natural Heritage Site Ancient Beech Forests and the chalk coast of Rügen with the Königsstuhl. We see ourselves as representatives of the island of Rügen, the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site Ancient Beech Forests and the Jasmund National Park.
Out of inner conviction, passion and love for nature, we offer guests from Germany and abroad as well as locals an informative and experience-oriented approach to the special habitats and its inhabitants in the Jasmund National Park. As a setting for romance and a place of longing for many generations, we are aware of the historical significance of this special place. Conveying its uniqueness is an obligation for us.
We are a service institution that conveys the uniqueness and beauty of nature to people at the highest level and makes processes of nature visible and understandable.
We are not primarily concerned with imparting biological knowledge. Rather, we want to share our enthusiasm for the national park idea and provide our guests with emotional and experiential access to hidden phenomena. In order to sensitise and enthuse our guests for the national park idea in the long term, the central contents of our work are the exhibitions in the KÖNIGSSTUHL National Park Centre and in the UNESCO World Heritage Forum, the personalised environmental education work and the personal approach to the guests by all staff members. We convey the contents and objectives in a stimulating, playful, exciting and interesting way.
We create (nature) atmosphere, experiential spaces, key experiences, sensory experiences, recreation and relaxation to make our guests feel at home and welcome in a special way. A visit to the KÖNIGSSTUHL National Park Centre should remain a good memory for our guests for a long time and be linked to the idea of the national park. In addition, we want to give our guests new impulses to motivate them to act in a sustainable, environmentally conscious way.
