A visit to the "Baumkronenpfad" (treetop path) in the National Park Hainich, Thuringia, Germany

We all enjoyed the different sights - not only Elizabeth.
Surprisingly, all the visitors, even the kids, kept quiet as requested by the park authorities in order not to disturb the wildlife. Nobody was smoking either.
It looks like the task to raise more interest in our environment and to protect it has been already achieved.
I learned that even researches are coming to watch certain insects.
Some Thuringians told me that too much money was wasted for the project to create this treetop path. I disagree. I believe it will pay off over the years. In addition it serves a good purpose.
It also will bring visitors from around the world to this beautiful region.
A proof is that the path has been extended since our visit.

It took us quiet a time to approach the end of the path. Several times we had to walk back because Elizabeth discovered something which my son and I missed.
I believe my wife could spend a whole day here on a comfortable lawn chair, a book and a digital camera with lots of memory.
More and more people came. Many of them were children.

All of us were also interested to climb the sightseeing tower which we were approaching before it became too crowded. We expected an even more spectacular view on the Thuringian forest.
We were not disappointed as you can see looking at our pictures.
Our efforts were rewarded after climbing stairs and stairs again to reach the top of the tower which reaches a height of about 44 m (144 feet) above ground.
There was already almost a small traffic jam on the narrow stairs.
In the tower we could find more useful information about the Hainich area. The presentation even attracted the young people to read them.

It was shown how the people in the stone age started to clear parts of the forest to use the land for agriculture until today today's efforts to turn a part of the remaining forest back to its original primeval status.
I wish the responsible people for tourism would add some English information to their self guided tour.

After climbing all the stairs everybody, except Elizabeth, felt hungry. All the food stands were open now and the visitors started to order typical Thuringian food. Mostly schnitzel, "Rostbrätel" (barbecued slice of pork), Bratwurst, baked goods or other sweets.
The gentleman in the picture below is eating a "Rostbrätel". I tried one too and it was tender and tasty. It is pork.

Naturally you must not get fenced in to enjoy a beer with your food!
The national park Hainich offers many programs including some for children. We show a little bit of this in our web site about the Hainich Region.
Also guided tours are offered. To include all these information in our brief web site would exceed our limits for this still free web design activities. Just use the contact information shown on page 1 to address your questions and request for further information.
