By travelling around the whole world, you sometimes hardly notice the beauty, that lies just in front of your door! The “Bavarian Forest NP” is one of those treasures, that´s only a 2 hours drive away from where I live. It´s located in south-east Germany, some 160 km east of Munich airport, on the border to the Czech Republic and the Bohemian Forest. Visiting the newest attraction, the world´s longest tree top walk, is really something remarkable and unique in the whole world! The 8-25 m high and 1300 m long path leads you right to the very impressive 44 m high tower, with a great view towards Lusen and Rachel Mountains.
The wooden construction of the tower is an architectural masterpiece, which gives you so many oppurtunities to photograph, even though it´s a bit difficult due to the many shades the construction builds. A polarizer and graduated ND Filters are the best bet, and of course a tripod! You can easily spend the whole morning there and finding always new lines and patterns on your way up and down.
The tower is also inhabitating a few old trees, which are up to 38 m high – they sort of have buildt the construct around the trees, and that gives the whole an even more “natural” look! You can find a link about the NP at the bottom of this post, after a small video taken at the beginning of the ascent. Enjoy!
