Thrills and a magnificent panorama await you on the new suspension bridge in Bad Wildbad, which opened in July 2018. At a height of 60 metres, the Wild Line connects the Sommerberg with the tree top walk in the Black Forest. It leads from the Auchhalder Kopfweg to the Heermannsweg at the paragliding refuge. As the "path of the brave", the bridge is part of Bad Wildbad's fairytale path "The Cold Heart".
With a length of 380 metres, the pedestrian suspension bridge is as long as the Empire State Building is high (without the top). Suspended from only two steel cables, the 1.20-metre-wide bridge rises towards the middle, so you can't see the end when you enter. The Wild Line is open all year round. In the summer months, you can even enjoy the adventurous atmosphere until nightfall.
How to get there
From Stuttgart, take the A8 to the Leonberg-West exit and then the B295 to Althengstett. There you turn off to Hirsau and then follow the B296 via Oberreichenbach to Calmbach, where you turn left to Bad Wildbad.
There are several car parks in Bad Wildbad: the multistory car park in the town centre, at the spa centre, at the Vital Therme or at the Palais Thermal. From there, it's easy to reach the Sommerbergbahn cable car, which takes you to the Wild Line and the tree-top walk.
You'll find a free car park at the end of town at the sports field. From there it is a 20-minute walk through the spa gardens to the Sommerbergbahn and the start of the hiking trails on the Sommerberg.
