This park is located in western Germany in the low mountain range of the Hunsrück within the Hunsrück nature park. As the sixteenth national park in Germany, it was founded in 2015 a year after the Black Forest National Park. The area counts as a biodiversity hotspot, but is still easy to reach within an hour from Mainz, Trier and Saarbrücken. With the National Park Gates Erbeskopf, Keltenpark and Wildenburg, the national park has three official main entrances where visitor centers are awaiting the visitors: The opening hours of the national park exhibition at the National Park Gate Erbeskopf are daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The National Park Gate Keltendorf, with the replica of a Celtic village, is open from March 30th to the end of October from Thursday to Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sundays and public holidays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. During the holidays, Mon., Tue., Wed. are considered additional days.
