This New Spiral Walkway in a Danish Forest Lets You Walk Above the Trees


If you want to get over your fear of heights, this treetop walkway can help you get the results gradually and peacefully. This walkway is called the Treetop Experience and it was built by Effekt Architecture. The walkway is built in a preserved forest south of Copenhagen. Gisselfeld Klosters Skove gives the visitors a bird’s-eye view of the top of the trees. The walkway is connected to a 148-feet-high observation tower and it is split into two routes. One of the routes is the high route which passes through the oldest part of the forest and the other route and tower are in the younger areas of the forest.

The observation tower is located in the middle of trees, creeks, lakes, and wetlands and it is a very impressive architectural object. The frame is hollow in the middle and gets more slender as it goes down. Stability is accomplished by the enlarged base, allowing a wider platform for viewing at the top of the tower. Additionally, it makes easier for visitors to interact with surrounding canopies.

Opening last Saturday, the tower was conceived by Camp Adventure which is a treetop adventure park in the forest that offers treetop climbing, hiking, and other activities in the forest. Their website explains that the treetop walk “creates a unique opportunity to take a walk above the treetops and experience the stunning nature of the preserved forest from another perspective. The tower and treetop walk is as a seamless continuous ramp that makes the forest accessible to all — regardless of their physical condition.”

Additionally, Camp Adventure states that when the weather is clear, the Turning Torso in Malmö, the Øresund Bridge, and parts of the Copenhagen skyline can be seen clearly. You can purchase tickets online at the cost of $19 (125 Danish krone).
