Auf dem Grünberg
The Treetop Walk is, as it is found on top of the Grünberg mountain, not directly accessible by car. You can reach us by cable car, on foot or by bike.
Parking is available at the Grünberg valley station.
The parking is chargeable from 30 minutes. Maximum 8€/day.
Yes. Parking spaces for people with handicaps are available at the Grünberg cable car valley station.
There are several hiking trails that lead to the Salzkammergut treetop path. Some are more challenging, some less. You can find detailed information about the available hiking routes here.
Are you more of a bike fan? The Grünberg is a great place for a bike tour! We recommend that you read up on the routes beforehand to choose the best cycling route for you.
It is always possible to take the cable car up and then have a relaxing bike ride. However, the Treetop Walk and the observation tower cannot be cycled on for safety reasons.
The most detailed information about the available cycle paths/e-bike trails can be found here:
Many of our visitors head for our tower, which is on your left when you have arrived on the Grünberg by cable car. But the tower is the exit of the walkway. You have to go in the opposite direction, please pay attention to the signs. The ticket office and the main entrance are on the right, as seen from the cable car station. It is about a 5-minute walk from the cable car station to the entrance of the trail.
YOUR VISIT AT THE TREETOP WALK
Dogs* and animals of all kinds are not allowed on the trail.
In addition to the hygiene aspect, the safety aspect (for animals and humans) plays a major role in this decision. Most responsible owners keep a close eye on their animals, but dogs can still show unexpected social behaviour towards strangers and also towards their peers. A fear of heights in dogs can also trigger flight behaviour. Unfortunately, the narrow path offers neither retreat nor escape possibilities for animals nor for people with a fear of dogs.
There are doghouses with drinking water available for your four-legged friends at the treetop path, and you can use them free of charge.
Information on this is available at the ticket office.
*Exception: disabled companion dogs and care assistance dogs.
Yes, the path is open the whole year, even when it rains. When it snows the path is cleared and can be walked on.
Only in the event of thunderstorms, hail, storms and ice, we reserve the right to close the trail for safety reasons.
If we have to close the trail at short notice, we will announce it here on the website, on Facebook and Instagram. We recommend that you check back on the day of your visit before you head out!
Please note: The opening hours for the slide are different from those on the trail. In case of rain, snow, high humidity or bad weather, the slide will remain closed or may be closed at short notice.
About 1 hour. Depending on how inquisitive you are, the walk can take a little longer.
Such individual characteristics can influence a walk on our trail. Most people get used to it after a short time and enjoy their time in the treetops. Of course, you should pay attention to how you feel. If you have a queasy feeling, you can simply walk along the trail without visiting the 39m high observation tower. The path and the viewing platform are at your disposal.
Our slide is suitable for both children and adults. Children under 6 must be accompanied by an adult.
Our slide is described by visitors as more “fun, breezy, laugh out loud” and less scary.
You can find our events on our website and on social media.
There is a baby changing room in the valley station of the Grünberg cable car and in the Grünbergalm, which can be used free of charge.
Yes, we have a large shop by the tower at the end of the trail with various souvenirs and useful items.
From December 2022 to April 2023 we have tested a winter opening for the first time in favourable weather conditions. Unfortunately, the weather in the mountains is very unpredictable. Snow and rain sometimes prevent us from opening. You can keep up to date with any changes to opening times on our website and social media.
For private purposes, everyone is allowed to take pictures and film on the treetop path with a mobile phone or camera. However, overflights and filming with drones are generally prohibited. In addition to environmental protection (noise from larger drones, disturbance of animal habitats during take-off, landing and drone flights), the protection of our visitors from unwanted recordings also plays a role in the ban.
A filming permit is always required for photo and film recordings made at the treetop path for commercial purposes. More information is available in our press section
Smoking is prohibited on the treetop path. This may seem strange for an open-air leisure facility, but please note: You are in a strictly protected area. Carelessly discarded cigarette stubs are unwelcome co-inhabitants here, which not only persist (2-7 years) but can also start forest fires.
Unfortunately no! For safety reasons, inline skates, skateboards, city scooters and bicycles are not allowed on the trail.
Of course you are allowed to bring your own food and drinks. Please note, however, that you must take back everything you bring with you. For the sake of the environment, please do not throw any rubbish off the trail and leave it as you would like to find it. There are rubbish bins in several places around the trail.
The walkway on the mountain, which leads to the Treetop Walk Salzkammergut, and the path itself including the observation tower are designed to be fully accessible and age friendly.
With a maximum gradient of 6%, the path is accessible for wheelchair users or families with prams.
Areas without ascents offer resting opportunities along the way.
We offer a wheelchair service at the Salzkammergut treetop path. Wheelchairs and walkers can be hired free of charge by prior arrangement by telephone. Pre-booking by telephone +43 7612 / 219 00-0.
- We ask for your understanding if all wheelchairs/wheelchairs are taken on days with particularly high visitor numbers.
- Please note that a valid photo ID must be deposited at the cash desk as a deposit when renting a wheelchair.
- The ID must be collected from the ticket office at least 1 hour before closing time.
There are no toilets on the trail itself, on the observation tower or in the shop. However, toilets and toilets for people with special needs are available at the Grünberg cable car valley station and in the immediate vicinity of the exit to the treetop path.
TICKETS AND PRICES
Not exactly, but up to the age of 19 you pay a cheaper rate.
