Dangers & Annoyances

Stay well clear of the Sperrgebiet, unless you’re part of an organised tour, as much of the area remains strictly off limits despite its national-park status. The northern boundary is formed by the B4 and extends almost as far east as Aus. The boundary is patrolled by some fairly ruthless characters, and trespassers will be prosecuted (or worse).
