  • The treetop path in bad Wildbad Schwarzwald is a wonderful and accessible destination for Black Forest friends and families on summer Hill in the Royal State Spa. Total length 1,250 metres, 40 m-high observation tower and 55 m long tunnel slide. The journey goes directly to the Stadtbahn from Pforzheim and the summer mountain railway. And then another round through the historic center or off to the Spa right ;-)

  • Entrance fee was way too high in my humble opinion. €9 to walk over the top of trees?! And to rub salt into the paying customers wounds, an extra €2 to go down a slide for approximately 5 seconds? No thanks, I'll use my legs that God gave me for free. I feel sorry for parents having to fork out multiple slide rides for their children. Yes I understand it's for the younger age bracket,and the activities along the route seem to keep them entertained, but it would be nice to have the interpretation boards translated into other languages for tourists. I ended up reading the little information booklet once I'd got home. Anyway just my opinion...
  • The tree-top walk is fantastic, and the view from the top is super. The slide cost 2 euros. And is worth taking. The whole family will enjoy the experience.
  • We are Americans living in Germany and wanted to take a quick day trip to see the Black Forest with 4 children in tow. The Baumwipfepfad (treetop trail) caught my eye in an internet article, and it seemed like a great place to let the kids work off their energy while taking in some spectacular sights. This elevated, wooden walking path is located between Bad Wildbad and Sommerberg, Germany. We visited on a cooler, autumn day and there was plenty of parking in the lot right across from the well-marked trail entrance. At busier times, it is my understanding that there are multiple parking garages in the town at the bottom of the hill (Bad Wildbad) and a tram for a few Euro per person (search for Sommerberg Funicular Railway). Along the trail, there are various activity stations. Some are about the forest and local wildlife such as one where you can listen to bird calls and another where you can identify animal tracks. Other activity stations are like mini-obstacle courses where you can walk a narrow plank or cross a rope bridge. (There are all enclosed; there is no danger of falling.) The little breaks were just right to keep my children from becoming bored with the walk. At the end of the path is a 40 meter (~130 foot) observation tower with 360 degree views of the area. It was stunning. For 2 Euro per person, there is an enclosed spiral slide back to the ground level, but you can also walk if you prefer. Children must be 6 to ride the slide. There are three things I wish I'd known before we went: First, dogs are welcome! The website says dogs are not allowed on the wooden path, so we left ours at home. Once we got there, it turned out she could have easily joined us and we could have stayed longer. Dogs may walk on the forest trails, just not the wooden boardwalk. A brochure said there are kennels with water bowls available while owners are on the boardwalk itself. Secondly, be sure you have coins if you want to ride the slide. The entrance to the slide has a turnstile which opens when 2 Euro are deposited. There is no change machine that we could see. Fortunately, it took small coins as well as whole Euro, so we scraped together enough for everyone to ride, and it was well worth it! Lastly, we left the parking lot to venture on up into Sommerberg for supper. Turns out the town was within walking distance up a short, paved road. I felt rather silly having moved my car when we could have easily walked as many others were doing.
  • Nice walk through the second floor of the woods. Interesting information provided on the way, but a little short and expensive. Beside the entrance fee u have to pay for the parking side (quite crowded) or the train to go there and you have to pay separately for the slide down from the sightseeing platform.
  • Cool place to visit even tho on good weather weekends it's pretty packed.
