Imagine rushing through the air with breathtaking speed. The forest floor shrinks beneath you and the trees look like stars from above. As the air streams by your heart starts pumping pure adrenaline through your veins. Your daily routine has been blown away and replaced with a mixture of pure joy and ultimate freedom. This is how ziplining feels. Well, not exactly – it feels better!
Join Outdoor Recreation as we head deep into the Black Forest for a Zipline Adventure. The Zipline course consists of seven ziplines totaling over 1,600 meters. Each Zipline has an identity all its own. From the gentle, relaxed glide of the Kimmigberg to the ultimate, white-knuckle flight of the Gründle, the longest nature Zipline in Germany. Ziplines range in length from 17 – 570 meters and vary between 9 and 83 meters above the valley floor. Ziplines are connected via picturesque paths and platforms that have purposely blended with natural environment. The Zipline course will lead you over steep rocky slopes, valleys, hills, and creeks. At the end, the short walk back to the starting point will give you a bit of time to mentally sort through the experiences of the day.
