Neuschönau: The Longest Tree Top Walk In The World

Nestled in the Bavarian forest just outside the small town of Neuschönau, the longest tree top walk is an unexpected but spectacular sight. It is as if the fantasy of a young child with perhaps too much imagination has suddenly come to life.

The statistics certainly stagger the imagination. The walk way is over 1300 meters long, and at its greatest height takes the visitor to over 25 meters above the trees. Yet what really captures the eye is the oval shaped dome at walk way's end. At 44 meters the tree top walk spirals around a massive pine tree, allowing for startling views of the canopy of this beautiful German forest and beyond to the Alps.
