Questions and answers about your visit to the treetop walk

Can I take my dog?

Dogs* or any other animals are unfortunately not allowed on the walkway. 

In addition to the hygiene aspect, the safety aspect for animals and humans plays a major role in the prohibition of animals on the walkway. Although most owners might act responsibly and keep an eye on their animals, dogs can show unexpected behavior towards strangers or other animals. Fear of heights can also trigger an uncontrolled flight response in dogs. Unfortunately, the narrow path width does not offer any retreat or escape option for animals or for people who are afraid of dogs.

* Exception: Disabled companion and assistance dogs.
