Bad Harzburg treetop trail
The first treetop trail in the Harz Mountains and Niedersachsen takes you high above Bad Harzburg. Experience the treetops of Germany’s northernmost highlands from a completely different perspective and learn fascinating facts about the region’s nature and culture at 18 platforms and over 50 activity stations.
The trail, which is a kilometre long, starts at the foot of the Burgberg in the heart of the Kurpark (spa gardens) in Bad Harzburg and leads you 20 metres up through the old treetops. Along the route, you can learn more about the timber industry, nature and the environment. What sets the trail apart from other treetop trails in Germany is its unique geology station where the stone layers of the Harz Mountains are explained at a cliff face. The trail also goes over a pond, gives visitors a view of the Harz Mountains National Park, and introduces the fascinating flora and fauna of Germany’s northernmost highlands. Particular highlights include the glass platform at the summit of the treetop trail and the adventure bridge with wobbly elements and beams to balance on.
