Tree top walk

The longest tree top walk of the world

in Neuschönau in the

Bavarian Forest National Park

National Park Center Lusen

Discover The Tree Top Walk The Tree Tower Experience The Tree Top Walk

From 8 to 25 m the tree top walk rises through

the trees of the mountain forest. 6 points of interest

will present the various forms of life within

a forest in an easy and pictured way. On your

own or on a guided tour life in the forest can be

discovered from a completely new view. Crossing

clearances and areas of dead wood the tree

top walk leads you up to the crowns of the trees

where insects and birds find their preferred habitats,

before it winds up the gigantic tower. From

there the walk ends on the ground in front of the

Hans Eisenmann Visitors Center where many

more information around the Bavarian Forest

National Park are waiting to be presented.

In the truest sense of the words the tree tower

with its 44 m of height is the highlight of the tree

top walk. Unique, not only because of its architectonical

form, but also due to how the tower

is built around and above 3 giant and old 38 m

fir trees. More than 500 m long, a ramp is winding

its way up, providing wonderful looks into

life and development of those 3 giants. From the

tree trunk to its crown you will find a huge variety

of life. Mosses, insects, small animals and

birds can be watched from a completely different

point of view. Even here the walk is built for

wheelchairs and buggies, rising nowhere more

than 6% and providing a smooth ascent.

Arriving upon the tower´s 44 m high platform

you are welcomed by an amazing view. Over the

mountains of Lusen and Rachel a sea of trees

of the Bavarian and Bohemian Forest unfolds

itself over hundreds of kilometers. On a clear

and sunny day even the northern alps lie in front

of the visitors view.

Wheelchairs can access the tower to the second

platform. Still 40 m high. Here you may also park

the childrens´ buggies, before accessing the upper

platform over the final stairs.

Along the tree top walk various topics regarding

life in a mountain forest are presented and

will come to life for the visitors. Local types of

trees and their different circumstances of life

are documented from the ground to the roof of

the forest and are explained while climbing the

tower. The biological diversity of the forest, the

process of decomposition in a primeval forest,

treetop research and the fight for light are further

themes presented at various points of interest

where visitors find precious information.

Experience The Tree Top Walk

27 pole constructions of massive trees are the

basis of the riskless adventure. A wooden fence

and transparent net take care of safety requirements

and allow the tree top walk to assimilate

itself harmonically into the forest. For the young

and the young at hearts with an addiction to adventure

8 stations with wooden bridges, rope

bridges and other challenges are spread along

the tree top walk.
