Nature Reserves

Nature reserves safeguard the diversity of species and habitat types. Nature reserves are also important in the preservation of the national landscape, cultural heritage, as well as recreation and camping areas. You can hike in the nature reserves freely. Please always remember to respect nature and bring back all of your own waste with you –⁠ leave only your footprints behind.
