Projects under development


There are currently three major influential projects and several smaller ones under development.


National Park Centre | Forest Youth Hostel | Environmental Education Area

Landesbetrieb Wald und Holz NRW (State Enterprise for Forestry and Timber, North Rhine-Westphalia) decided to house the National Park Centre and the Forest Youth Hostel in newbuilds. The “Redoute” listed building – formerly “Haus der weiblichen Angestellte” (female staff accommodation house) – is to be included in the building concept. An investor is presently being sought to buy the plot of land, construct the buildings, and rent the premises to Wald und Holz NRW on a long-term basis.

Landesbetrieb Wald und Holz NRW plans to purchase more than 40 hectares of forest area and open spaces at the estate – so-called environmental education areas – for the qualified environmental educational activities provided by the Forest Youth Hostel.

Hotel | Guest house | Holiday flats

Additional accommodation is urgently required to supplement the current lodgings at Vogelsang IP. According to a recent feasibility study, the upper two of the four “Hundertschaftshäuser” (former military accommodation premises for several hundred people) could be converted into a 3-star category hotel. The buildings, spanning almost 4,800 m² of floor space, are in the direct vicinity of the Forum Vogelsang IP and offer a spectacular view over the Eifel National Park. The other two buildings could be converted into holiday flats.

Use of “Van Dooren” | Design of “Neue Mitte”

The former “Van Dooren” barracks, built in 1951, constitute the largest single building (almost 19,000 m² gross floor space) on the Vogelsang IP estate. Due to its central location, the surrounding land (approx. four hectares) also provides a good option for creating a “New Centre”.

Consequently, usage concepts are being sought that include both the building and the surrounding open areas. As only the foundations dating back to the 1930s – and not the entire “Van Dooren” complex – are classified as “listed”, partial use of the former barracks or partial demolition would also be possible.
