These open highlands were in military use in the last century and are now part of the National Park Eifel.
The forest of the Dreiborner Hochfläche was not cultivated in the almost 60 years in which the area was a military training area and has largely reached a jungle-like condition due to no longer cleared old and dead wood. The national park administration has set itself the goal of preserving this natural forest as a habitat for partially rare animal species such as the European wildcat and establishing specially protected rest areas around breeding colonies for Great Cormorant, Grey Heron and Black Stork. The open highlands area is perfect to see openland birds like Skylark, Meadow Pipit, European Stonechat, Red-backed Shrike or Cuckoo.
There is a small parking place behind the village Dreiborn. You can explore the area best by walking.
