In the heart of the Krkonoše National Park, you can explore the modern educational trail about life in the forest. At the end of the trail, you will get to the 45 meters high tower with a great view over several mountain ranges of the Czech Republic.
Treetop Walk Highlights
Once you enter the gate of the treetop walk, you will get to the wooden pedestrian bridge leading through the forest above the ground. Here you can explore several educational stops about the forest life and unique fauna and flora of the national park. On the way, you can experience several adrenalin stops and try your balance over dangerously looking abyss. Then, you will get to the 45 meters high observation tower.
Before you start climbing, explore the underground of this tower with an artificial cave. Here you can find the exhibition of life within the root system of trees. In the middle of this cave is a giant trunk of the tree with its root system. Around this trunk are several educational boards with an explanation of life in the soil around the trees. This is quite a unique exhibition in the Czech Republic. So, make sure, you do not miss it.
Then, you will get to the long spiral trail leading to the observation tower with a panoramic view of the several mountain ranges. You can observe the foothills of the Krkonoše, but you can see also surrounding Jizera mountains, Broumovsko national protected area, and Jeseníky mountains. After you enjoy these views, you can walk back or take 80 meter-long dry slide down. The whole trail is barrier-free, so it is also suitable for strollers and handicapped.
In 2018, Krkonoše treetop walk received two prestigious awards – the best construction in the region and the best destination of the year, voted by the visitors. If you like this kind of experience, I would recommend you also visit the sister treetop walk in Lipno, South Bohemia.
