Portal:Palatine Forest

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Welcome to the Palatine Forest portal!

The Palatine Forest (also called the Palatinate Forest) occupies about one third of the German region of Palatinate and is the largest contiguous stretch of forest in Germany. Studded with ancient castles and bizarre rock formations, it is also a nature park, popular with hikers and walkers, and part of the cross-border Palatine Forest-North Vosges Biosphere Reserve which is shared with France. Through the centre of this wooded region runs the Palatine Watershed. The region is sparsely populated and relatively unspoilt.
