Treetop path

Climb to the top of the jungle on the treetop path

Everything is different up here. The sound of the birdsong is more powerful. The air and light purer. The leaves more delicate, the sky closer. The treetop path in the Hainich National Park leads right through the foliage of stately deciduous trees to above their treetops. The wooden path gently reveals the secrets of the otherwise inaccessible tree giants.

Over a length of 540 m, the treetop path winds its way from the lower canopy up to the tops of the jungle treetops. The treetop path is therefore particularly exposed to wind and weather. Particularly in winter and on very stormy days, it can therefore be closed due to the weather.

By the way: The treetop walk is not operated by the national park administration, but by the town of Bad Langensalza.
