The dense, ancient woodlands, for which Spessart is famous, are unique in Germany, stretching unbroken over an area of 40,000 hectares. In the north conifers are most proliferous, whilst beech and oak are more common in the central and southern areas.

Botanists are attracted by the great variety of plant species, including such rarities as colourful, wild orchids, columbines and gentians. Yellow broom and heathers in hues from scarlet to deep purple are typical of the Spessart countryside. Forest fruits and wild fungi are found in abundance in this large, undisturbed forest.

Wild boar, red and roe deer are common, whilst ornithologists delight in raptors such as goshawks, sparrowhawks and buzzards, and many species of woodpecker. The clear Spessart streams and rivers provide ideal conditions for trout fisheries and in recent years the beaver has been re-established in the wild.
