Heide Himmel - The highest treetop path in Northern Germany


    In October 2019, a brand new experience has been opened at the Luneburg Heath Wildlife Park. "Heide Himmel", the highest treetop path in Northern Germany offers nature lovers and anyone who wants to enjoy unique views an insights into the nature of the Luneburg Heath. 

    Along the barrier-free, 700-metre-long path through the forest at the edge of the wildlife park, visitors are offered many new impressions.

    The 40-metre-high observation tower not only provides a breathtaking panoramic view. Dealing with the topic of "nature" and its conservation will also broaden one's own horizons. The opening hours of the tree-top walk are linked to the opening hours of the wildlife park, and visitors to the wildlife park benefit from a combined ticket for both facilities.
