Nature and Countryside Centre
Visitor's Centre in historic surroundings
The Nature and Countryside Centre in Salgesch is the administrative centre of the Nature Park. The 300 year-old commandry was completely renovated and linked to a modern building constructed according to the latest energy-saving standards.
