Vacation in your own country - that's not only a good idea in Corona times. Even before Corona, around 34% of Germans spent their holidays in Germany, in the Corona summer of 2020 this figure even rose to 56%. And that is of course not surprising: the uncertain situation in many travel areas, the health risk of the pandemic, but of course also the beauty of the German holiday destinations ensured a real boom in domestic tourism. But this trend has also been apparent in normal conditions for some time, because vacationing in your own country is also good for the climate.

The beaver, which is tied to the water habitat, is a special feature of the nature park. In the Saarland part of the nature park, beavers were reintroduced after the complete extermination of the largest European rodent on two rivers (from the Elbe region): on the Ill and in the Noswendeler stream valley. Beavers live sociable in families in their self-built "castles", as the dams made of branches and small trees are calle
The largest European owl species belongs to the so-called "eared owls", whereby the tufts of feathers referred to as ears have nothing to do with the actual ears. The owl weighs up to 5 kg - but only the females, the males are about a third smaller, which is why they are also called "Terzel".
Another hunter of the air, the peregrine falcon, is even more endangered. As an "air hunter" (he kills all of his prey in flight), the peregrine falcon is not tied to a special habitat, but also needs rock walls as nesting and breeding grounds. Areas with rich bird life are preferred (birds up to the size of ducks are popular prey). However, the peregrine falcon avoids closed forests. During a walk on the Kaiserweg along the Saar steep slopes near Mettlach, there is the possibility, with a bit of luck, of spotting peregrine falcons.
