Have you always wanted to get closer to the clouds? At a height of up to 40 metres, almost no problem anymore. The Skywalk Allgäu consists of a 540-metre-long suspension bridge construction supported by steel masts. Running through the middle of the forest, the viewing platform offers a great panoramic view of the Allgäu, Lake Constance and the Alps. For those completely free of giddiness, there is the option of returning to the ground via wobbly bridges and tube slides.
The treetop path is located in the middle of the nature discovery trail, the barefoot trail and the nature discovery trail for explorers. In order not to harm the forest, the suspension bridge structures were "planted" like tree trunks, thus embedding state-of-the-art architecture in nature. 14 steel masts support the bridge and are anchored in the deeper rock layers. 3,000 metres of steel cable ensure that the bridge is well secured. Due to the use of steel and the absence of concrete, the treetop path appears delicate and light.
Since June 2019, the Skywalk Allgäu also offers the possibility of forest bathing. In an area designated as a quiet zone, which is equipped with wooden loungers, seating and a life spiral, you can experience the forest with all your senses and come to rest. Workshops are also offered for the Far Eastern tradition.
