when I write „protected area“, this often will have implications like you may not construct buildings, you may not walk off roads and paths, you may not pick plants (e.g. flowers) and mushrooms, log trees, hunt, light a fire, etc., while otherwise in Germany you have generally the right to walk on any „unused“ land in the open landscape (regardless of ownership), and often the owners may not even fence their property (like woods) or forbid entering their property, with the exception of young plantings, so protected areas tend to have more restrictions for the visitors than the rest of the country. In Scandinavian countries you even have the right to go fishing or set up a fire or tent on someone else’s property, within certain limits: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_to_roam
