On the treetop path in the Steigerwald in Upper Franconia, you can get to know the forest from a new perspective. The path is 1150 metres long between the treetops and, at a height of 26 metres, teaches you a lot of interesting facts about flora and fauna. The highlight is the goblet-shaped observation tower. At a height of 42 metres, it offers you a great view over the second-largest deciduous forest area in Bavaria. Due to the low gradient, the path and tower are also suitable for prams and wheelchairs.
The treetop path is divided into four thematic areas: the Steigerwald, using wood, forest and hunting and forest nature conservation. These are taken up again and again at individual stations. The treetop app is innovative and optimally combines the real and virtual worlds. For example, you can test your knowledge of the four topics in a quiz. Free Wi-Fi is available along the entire trail.
There is also a playground at the treetop path, as well as a shop and a restaurant. The shop is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and you can buy regional and nature-related products there. In the restaurant at the treetop path, the beer garden invites you to linger.
If you want to learn more about the Steigerwald, take the bus shuttle to the Steigerwald Centre in Handthal in Lower Franconia. There you will learn about wood use and forest management, as well as sustainability. If you want, you can also walk 1 hour (one way only) to the Steigerwald Centre and enjoy nature.
On the B22, you can reach the car park of the treetop walk directly from Ebrach or Breitbach. From there it is a few minutes' walk to the entrance.
