From spring 2021 onwards, a new excursion destination in Heringsdorf, the Treetop Walk Usedom, will offer holidaymakers and locals of all ages unique views and perspectives as well as unforgettable experiences in nature of the island of Usedom. With a total length of 1,350 metres, the treetop walk winds its way through the forest area of the island of Usedom at treetop level.
Tower and path are largely completed and already visible to passers-by. The visitor centre is also nearing the end of the shell construction phase. The next step will now be the construction of the didactic learning and experience stations.
This project receives a funding of around 1.9 million euros from the European Union.
The opening is planned for spring 2021.
We are already looking forward to your visit!
At a height of up to 23 metres the sustainable adventure trail leads through the different levels of the forest. In form of several learning stations over a path length of around 1,350 metres, the accessible walkway will provide interesting and entertaining information on environmental education, the Usedom Nature Park and the flora and fauna that live there. Experience stations with exciting balancing elements at lofty heights invite you to join in. Walking up to the tops of the peaks opens up unique perspectives of the island of Usedom, which already give a small foretaste of the view from the approx. 33-metre-high, square observation tower, which was modelled on the "old Bismarckwarte". From here, 75 metres above sea level, there is a unique view over the three imperial resorts of Bansin, Heringsdorf and Ahlbeck and over the Baltic Sea. As a special highlight, there will be a 50 m² walkable net on the topmost tower platform. Due to the low gradient the path is also suitable for wheelchair users and visitors with pushchairs and can be reached via a lift in the ascending tower. An entrance hall with shop, gastronomy and beer garden completes the overall offer of the Treetop Walk Usedom.
