Baumwipfelpfad Bayerischer Wald Reviews
Almost as high as a bird can fly Jun 29, 2010
The world's longest canopy walk ('Baumwipfelpfad') was opened in Neuschönau in September 2009 and has become one of the most popular and fascinating tourist magnets in the Bavarian Forest National Park area since then.
This fancy construction made of Douglas firs enables nature lovers to experience a totally new way of looking at the gorgeous and unspoiled mountain forest.
Are you keen on a unique nature experience? Off you go then!
The interested visitors walk along the 1.300 metres long path which ends on a platform 44 metres above the ground.
This different view from bird's-eye perspective is definitely amazing and provides a wide picturesque sight.
The canopy walk enables people of every age to feel free like a bird. Thanks to the path's maximum inclination of 6% and the transparent net that surrounds the construction a fascinating trip is grated to everyone. So, you can easily enter the walk with a buggy and a wheel-chair because the entire path is constructed barrier-free.
Furthermore the canopy walk provides three adventurous stations where you can run another path - what about trying the rope bridge for a change? Those little challenges are pretty neat, especially in the height of about 25 metres.
Guided tours are also available to those who are interested in getting to know every intriguing detail. And trained staff will be all ears whenever a question's on the tip of your tongue.
Are you ready for your trip to the treetops? Come around and experience a wonderful day in the middle of the almost untouched Bavarian Forest. If you're not sure whether this attraction's made for you come around either way 'cause the first few hundred metres are for free. So, it's definitely worth a try!
