  • Length of the walkway: 785 metres
  • Maximum height of path: up to 23 Meter
  • Amount of wood used: 957 m³

Learning and activity stations

Along the 1,350-metre-long trail there are numerous learning and activity stations to provide variety during the visit.

The learning stations provide interesting information about the local tree species, flora and fauna of the island of Usedom, its history and geography and others. Seeing and feeling are in demand, touching and turning are desired!

At the activity stations you have to overcome balancing beams or wobbly elements at dizzy heights. Fun and excitement are guaranteed.

Tower

The tower

The tower

The highlight of the Treetop Walk is the square observation tower. It is modelled on the former “Bismarckwarte”. This stood only a few metres away in the period 1907 – 1946 and was a popular destination for excursions.Once you reach the top of the tower, you are 72 metres above sea level – and thus at the highest point on Usedom.

With a maximum rise of 6%, it is wheelchair accessible all the way to the top viewing platform. From there, you will enjoy an impressive panorama in all directions and see the island of Usedom in all its diversity.

Facts and figures about the tower

  • Length of the walkway in the tower: 565 metres
  • Height of the tower: 33 metres
  • Length of each loop in the tower: 96 metres

Net

The Net

The net

For adventure-seekers, a special surprise awaits at the very top of the tower.

In the middle of the roof-top platform there is a 50m² walk-through net. Here you can hover 33 metres above the forest floor and test your fitness for heights.

Since the lookout tower is built on the Präsidentenberg (president’s hill), the tower platform is 75 metres above sea level, making it the island of Usedom’s highest peak.

Dogs

Are dogs allowed on the treetop path?

Are dogs allowed on the treetop path?

Dogs or any kind of animals are unfortunately not allowed along the trail. The only exception is for disabled companion dogs and care assistance dogs.
On the Treetop Walk, we want to provide all guests with a lighthearted outdoor experience, including visitors who may shy away from encounters with animals or even be afraid of them. In addition, we want to prevent hygienic issues that can arise due to the natural requirements of the animal. Last but not least, walking at great heights is stressful for the animals. Occurring fear of heights in dogs can trigger unexpected social or even escape behaviour.
Due to these reasons, there are lockable dog boxes with fresh drinking water available at the entrance area. These are free of charge. The dog can wait there for its owners.
