The Neckertal tree top walk near Mogelsberg was opened in 2018 as the first tree top walk in Switzerland. The path runs at a height of four to 15 metres through the treetops and offers beautiful long-distance views as far as the Black Forest. A highlight is the 55-metre high viewing platform. You should plan around 30 to 60 minutes for the 500-metre long circular trail. Below the treetop path there is also a 650 metre long forest adventure trail.
More than 30 learning and adventure stations along the two trails invite young and old to experience the forest and nature with all their senses and learn about the flora and fauna of the region. In addition to educational information, there is also plenty of fun and games. A large marble run, balancing paths and a zip line ensure that there is no time for boredom.
The treetop path is barrier-free. There is a lift for wheelchair users at the entrance. Dogs are not allowed on the path.
How to get there
The treetop path Neckertal is located about 25 kilometres west of St. Gallen. Parking spaces are available a little below the path, about 10 minutes away on foot. There are further parking possibilities in the village, at the community square and at the sports centre. For guests with wheelchairs, parking spaces are also available directly at the path. However, a parking permit must be obtained in advance by telephone. Access is forbidden for normal traffic.
The adventure trail is also easily accessible by train. From Mogelsberg station, a 30-minute walk (uphill) through the forest leads to the entrance of the treetop walk. On the way to the path the first adventure stations are already waiting. There is also an alternative path through the village, which is more suitable for families with strollers or wheelchairs.
