If you want to enjoy good views on the Edersee water reservoir – use the TreeTopWalk as a viewing platform. It is a metal walking path up into the treetops giving you also the opportunity to learn more about the forest and the animals living within. The TreeTopWalk is located directly at the Edersee in a region belonging to Edertal, Germany and the natural reserve Kellerwald-Edersee.
You can park your car outside of the forest and walk some meters to a cash desk building. After getting tickets you need to walk 750 meters to the real entrance. The way there is called the squirrel path and you can learn more about animals living in this part of Germany, climb into the nest of a squirrel and walk into the tunnel of a badger. At the end of the path there is a place for having a picnic and an automated entrance to the TreeTopWalk.
The walk leads up into the treetops and on your way you can look for wooden animals in the trees and learn more about the bigger and smaller animals and different kinds of trees. The path ends with a fantastic view on the Edersee – and then you have to walk the same way back. That is a bit disappointing and I’ve seen better solutions. The TreeTopWalk is in comparison quite short – but you can combine your visit with a look at the nearby Wildtierpark (wild animal zoo) or high-rope garden. Another option is the nice AquaPark water playground close to the dam.
