A treetop walkway in the Bavarian Forest National Park, Neuschönau, Germany
A bird’s-eye view of Bavaria. Go climb a tree
This treetop trail in Germany’s Bavarian Forest National Park is one of the world’s longest canopy trails – and one of the most unique. Visitors to the egg-shaped trail can wind their way around the trees for almost a mile, reaching heights of 144 feet all while getting breathtaking views of firs, beeches, spruces and more. Not only do canopy walkways like this one give visitors a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding forests, they also allow people to experience nature without harming it.Bavarian Forest National Park was established in 1970, becoming the first of what are now 16 national parks in Germany. And while it may not be Germany's largest national park, when combined with the neighbouring Šumava (Bohemian Forest) National Park in the Czech Republic, they together become the largest forest in Central Europe.
