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

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.
