The Treetop Path (Waldwipfelweg) in Sankt Englmar offers something for young and old all year round. You move along a footbridge up to 30 metres above the ground and get to know the different tree species of the Bavarian Forest and bird calls better. The 2.50 metre wide path is barrier-free and also suitable for prams and wheelchairs due to its slight incline.

On the observation platform you have a great view over the Danube valley, the Bavarian Forest and the plains of the Gäuboden. You can also read the legend of the forest spirits and sit on the spirits' thrones.  If that's not enough action for you, you shouldn't miss the 25-metre suspension bridge. During Advent, the Waldwipfelweg is transformed into a large Christmas market with various attractions on the four weekends. 

Plenty to do away from the treetop path as well

Once back on the ground, the nature adventure trail begins with 25 hands-on stations for young and old. The path leads through the forest for two kilometres. Along the way, you will meet live animals such as alpacas, llamas or black-nosed sheep, and there is a climbing wall with different levels of difficulty. There is also an outdoor climbing playground for smaller children, a 500 square metre indoor playground and a restaurant with a panoramic terrace. 

You can sharpen your senses in the sensory cave, the cave of illusions and the path of phenomena. A fun experience is the House on the Head. It is set up on two floors like a real house with numerous optical illusions, and you can take photos of yourself standing on your head or becoming a giant, for example. Admission to the popular House of the Senses costs an extra 2 euros per person, and it can only be visited from the Waldwipfelweg.

How to get there

On the A3 between Regensburg and Passau, take the Schwarzach exit not far from Deggendorf. Then follow the road in the direction of St. Englmar. Shortly after entering Maibrunn, turn left. There you will find the parking spaces. After a 500-metre walk, you will reach the entrance to the Waldwipfelweg.
