Since August 2020, visitors can soar through the air with the new BaumSchwebeBahn in Bad Harzburg. The starting point of the 1,000-metre-long flight route is near the gondola mountain station on the Großer Burgberg, where you have a great panoramic view of the Brocken at an altitude of 460 metres.

From the starting point, a pipe system leads downhill in serpentines through the forest. 19 masts have been erected for this purpose. During the ride, visitors sit firmly secured in a harness and can enjoy the feeling of flying to the fullest with arms and legs hanging freely. A maximum of 12-15 km/h can be reached during the ride. The old oaks and beeches are close enough to touch. The flight lasts six minutes and ends at the far end of the Treetop Walk.

The experience is not only suitable for adults, but also for families with children, as the ride is available from a body weight of 20 kg. Two people can also whiz through the treetops together. The maximum weight is 120 kg.  

In addition to the barrier-free Treetop path and the Burgberg cable car, there are also a high ropes course, a mini-golf course, several hiking trails and playgrounds nearby.

After four years of planning, the BaumSchwebeBahn was opened on 1 August 2020. The 2.5 million euro project was implemented with EU funding. The construction phase started in November 2019 and included the spectacular setting of the masts by helicopter.

The operator of the new attraction is BaumSchwebeBahn Bad Harzburg GmbH, for which Eva-Christin Ronkainen-Kolb and Holger Kolb are responsible with their company HarzVenture with 75.1 percent (operator of the Harz tree-top walk) and Bernd Vollrodt with the Kur-, Tourismus- und Wirtschaftsbetriebe der Stadt Bad Harzburg GmbH with 24.9 percent.
