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.
