The Treetop Walk
in the Naturerbe Zentrum Rügen provides step-free access to the treetops.
The island of Rügen thrives on its diversity. It can be explored at ground level along beautiful cycling and hiking trails. However, only the Naturerbe Zentrum Rügen's Treetop Walk allows you to get close to the treetops.
Up here, in
pristine nature 4 to 17 metres above the forest floor, you’ll find new
over the island of Rügen, the Kleiner Jasmunder Bodden and the Baltic Sea.
The walk and observation tower are designed to be accessible
A maximum gradient of 6% also makes it easy to visit with a wheelchair or pushchair.
In the truest
sense of the word, the highlight of the walk is the 40-metre-high observation
tower, also called the Eagle's Nest.
It is unique not only due to its airy architectural form, but also because the tower was built around a 30-metre-high copper beech.
The 600-metre ramp inside the tower winds its way up around the
tree trunk, offering special insights into the tree's life and development.
Once you arrive at the observation platform, you will be rewarded with an
impressive view of Rügen's countryside and the Baltic Sea.
In good weather, you can even see the steeples of Stralsund and the pylons of the Rügen bridge.
With a little luck, you’ll catch a glimpse of the white-tailed eagles native to the surrounding forests as they circle.
Information boards along the 1,250-metre walk provide explorers young and old with interesting and exciting facts on the indigenous tree species and their different living conditions. By seeing and touching, you’ll get interesting insights on the following themes:
• Rügen through the millennia
• The water transport of our trees
• Treetops as a habitat
There are balance beams and moving obstacles to overcome at the activity stations - and all this at dizzy heights.
The stations provide a good measure of fun and excitement for family outings.
Our very own restaurant and beer garden serves regional specialities.
