The 1250-metre-long treetop path in Bad Wildbad in the Black Forest winds up to 20 metres above the forest floor through fir, beech and spruce trees. Here you can experience the forest from a completely new perspective during a walk. The path, which is open all year round and was opened in 2014, leads you up to the 40-metre-high observation tower shortly before the end. From here you have a great 360-degree view over the treetops.
On your way up, you can not only enjoy the great view. You can stop at various balconies and learn about the Black Forest, its flora and fauna. Various stations along the trail invite you to climb and balance safely on the forest floor. A special highlight on the way down is the 55-metre tunnel slide, which takes you directly from the upper platform to the exit of the treetop path.
Since August 2019, the "Abenteuerwald Sommerberg" forest playground has been located right next to the Black Forest treetop path as a further attraction. More than 20 varied and exciting play and learning stations await young and old on an area of over 8,000 m². The forest playground, which is wonderfully integrated into the forest, offers fun for the whole family.
After visiting the facilities, you can either strap on your skis at the Sommerberg lift not far away if there is enough snow or take the Sommerberg cable car to the centre of Bad Wildbad. The WildLine suspension bridge leads from the Sommerberg to the Auchhalderkopf.
