Walkways in Treetops, Above Ground and In the Clouds

Walkways in Treetops, Above Ground and In the Clouds

Awesome views of the countryside, entertainment, education, adrenalin, giant slides and swings: you can find all of this in treetop walkways. Come with your children, or without them, to the Czech Republic!

A new treetop walkway opened at the beginning of summer 2017 in the Krkonoše, the highest Czech mountains, near Janské Lázně. There are now three such attractions in the Czech Republic, the oldest being the Lipno Treetop Walkway, which has been open for five years.

A new walkway in the Krkonoše

The Krkonoše Treetop Walkway was built in a mixed forest on the edge of Janské Lázně at the foothills of Černá hora, where the oldest trees are a hundred years old with some having grown to a height of thirty metres. The lookout platform stands 15 metres higher than the trees and offers views of the east, south and west. The Krkonoše project is one of the largest in Europe, boasting a forty-five-metre lookout tower, a length of 1,300 metres, and a boardwalk up to 23 metres above the ground. Unlike the other two walkways, this one will also take you under the ground, to the roots of these majestic trees, where you can study the microscopic world of soil from the roots to the smallest of animals. The walkway is completely barrier-free, and there are many stops with information about the Krkonoše forest and several adrenalin stations with a series of various obstacles, and just like at the Lipno Treetop Walkway and Dolní Morava, you can get back down by a giant slide.

South-Bohemian Lipno Walkway celebrates anniversary

In June 2017, the Lipno Treetop Walkway in Lipno nad Vltavou, one of the most frequently visited tourist destinations in South Bohemia and Šumava, celebrated its fifth anniversary. The first walkway of its kind in the Czech Republic is open all year round except for Christmas Eve. The walkway has 11 adrenalin sections for children, interactive didactic stops, and one of the longest dry giant slides in the Czech Republic. A fascinating view of the Lipno Lake, Šumava nature, Novohradské hory and the peaks of the Austrian Alps, are just some of the rewards for climbing up the 675-metre-long boardwalk to a height of 40 metres! You can reach the walkway on foot or by bike, but you can also use the chairlift or a special bus. The Treetop Walkway is open to the extended time of 11 p.m. with special lights every Tuesday during the summer holidays, or you can go see one of the night concerts on the walkway during summer.

Sky Walk in Dolní Morava

The Sky Walk in Dolní Morava, located between the Orlické Mountains and Jeseníky, offers the most adrenalin. The fifty-five metre tall building does not stand on the foothills, but it is built on a mountain ridge at an altitude of 1,116 metres. Instead of regular circles you will find wooden boardwalks that intertwine with each other (allegedly to mimic the flight of moths) and several adrenalin stops, including a net hanging above an abyss and a climb through a net tunnel between levels. The top of the walk offers a fantastic view of Králický Sněžník with the Morava River valley and its surroundings, as well as Jeseníky and the Krkonoše. The adventurous can ride the 100-metre-long slide with windows and several tilted turns to get back down. And by the way, you may want to bring some warm clothes even in summer as it is often very windy, and there might even still be snow there in spring and autumn, not to mention winter!
