I am working at a nature conservation site. We have areas (especially forests) were visitores are banned from. How can I tag this information within those forest shapefiles?

Hello! You could provide the area in question with either the access=no or access=private tag depending on the limitations of the ban. See links for more comprehensive explanations of these tags. If access is granted for service personell on individual basis I would go with access=private. Note that there's also a access=permit option. This tag should be used in cases where a permit is required for access, but when it's routinely granted to everyone requesting it.

You should also provide the possible roads and paths within the restricted area with the corresponding tags.

This. Most software that uses OSM data will not look at an enclosing area and will rely on you correctly tagging the individual roads/paths.

In this case I'd think access=permit would be the way to go since access=no reads as too absolute, or you specify the exceptions such as forestry=yes (6600 uses per Taginfo), on the ways as well per reply above.
