Are dogs allowed on the Treetop Walk in Neuschönau?

Are dogs allowed on the Treetop Walk in Neuschönau?

Dogs* or animals of any kind are unfortunately not allowed on the trail, not even on a lead or in a bag.

In addition to the hygiene aspect, the safety aspect (for animals and humans) plays a major role in the ban on animals on the trail. Most responsible owners keep a safe eye on their animal, yet dogs can show unexpected social behaviour towards strangers and also towards other animals. A fear of heights in dogs can also trigger flight behaviour. Unfortunately, the narrow path width offers neither retreat nor escape possibilities for animals or for people with any fear of animals.

*Exception: companion dogs for the disabled and assistance dogs.

However, there are dog crates with fresh water available on the grounds, which you can use free of charge. You can get info about this at the ticket office.
