Kellerwald National Park is a protected area of approyimately 60 km² in the central region of Germany. Although it is covered with one of Europe´s last natural copper beech forests (also known as ‘European beech’) the acknowledgement as a National Park required a struggle over many years.

Since it finally got established in 2004 Kellerwald is today one of Germany´s youngest National Parks. Four years later, a visitor center was built to make the park even more attractive to travelers and nature lovers. It hosts an elaborated exhibition that consists of a multisensual 3D Cinema and a large number of interactive exhibits which provide unusual points of view and disclose whatever a visitor could hardly experience first hand.

As athmospheric and playful introduction a series of rotundas make up the first part of the exhibition with an installation in each of them. 20 different local species were modeled as moveable 3D figures in a lifelike way to be animated, to some extend in realtime.
