We have put together five adrenaline-packed excursion ideas for the particularly brave. On your marks, get set, go!

Spessart Climbing Forest

The Kletterwald Spessart in Lower Franconia has courses for everyone who enjoys climbing. Those who are hesitant at first can also get used to the heights step by step. On the two courses "Little Wolf" and "Big Bear" you climb up to a maximum height of 1.5 meters. Therefore, these are suitable for children as young as three years old. The young climbers have a lot of fun testing their skills on the wooden seesaws, swinging swings, ropes and small bridges. On the blue, green, orange and yellow course, they can climb higher: at heights of up to 10 meters, they swing on lianas, balance over bridges and climb through rope spider webs - always secured with a climbing harness and helmet, of course. For children under 12, parents must always be present.

A little insider tip on the side: The climbing forest is located right next to a game preserve. From the higher vantage points, deer, ibex and wild boar can occasionally be spotted between the treetops if you have patience and are calm.

Sport in the vertical: The Spessart Climbing Forest

The Spessart Climbing Forest in HeigenbrĂĽcken offers a challenge and a special thrill for every age group: the youngest can climb up one and a half metres, while the older ones can jump from 20 metres into the depths on the Treejump.

GrĂĽntensee Climbing Forest

You can also prove your courage while climbing in another corner of Bavaria - in Grüntensee in the Allgäu. This climbing forest, with its eleven routes of varying difficulty, is designed entirely with families in mind. The "Zwergerlweg" for three- to five-year-olds is one meter above the ground. Children from the age of six can then climb higher. On the "Koboldweg", the "Hexengang", the "Piratengang" and the "Seeblick" they climb up to a height of 4.5 meters and balance together over swaying obstacles made of wood and ropes. You can only manage these routes if you hold out your hand and paw to each other. The whole family has to stick together and prove dexterity and stamina. At the end, it's back to solid ground via a zip line with the flying fox. There is also an exciting adventure playground waiting for you to let off steam. If you want to explore the nature around the Grüntensee even further, it is best to use one of the many hiking trails, which you can even walk on with a stroller.

Climbing with the little ones

The Himalayas are in Bavaria: that's the name of the 15-metre-high course for experienced climbers in the GrĂĽntensee Climbing Forest. Too high for you and certainly nothing for the kids? There are a total of nine other climbing routes and even a slackline course in this high ropes course.

Summer toboggan run in Kronach

You can whiz downhill with the wind on the Fröschbrunna Coaster summer toboggan run in Kronach. It's just a short, half-hour walk from the train station. At the bottom station, simply board the bright orange bobsled and the surface lift will pull you 250 meters up the small mountain. From the top, enjoy the view of the Rodach Valley and Kronach with its late medieval old town, before speeding back downhill toward the valley in no time at all. The rapid ride is on a rail system, so that even children can jet down alone. The youngest simply take a seat in a bobsled together with their parents for the descent.

White water tour Tyrol

In Archbach near Reutte in Tyrol, you have the opportunity to fight your way through a gorge in the wild waters of a cool mountain river together with a gorge guide. You can prove your courage again and again and abseil from several meters height, jump from rocks into the water or slide on stone slides into the cool water. Very important: When canyoning, the motto "everything can, nothing must" always applies. On the tour everyone slowly approaches the more difficult parts and everyone decides for themselves what they are confident in. All difficult or high places can also be climbed around. So everyone can be just as much daredevil as he trusts himself.

Hi-Sky in Munich

High above the ground you can also ride the Ferris wheel in Munich. The Hi-Sky is located directly at the Ostbahnhof. At 78 meters, it is the largest transportable Ferris wheel in the world. Whoever gets on here should be free of giddiness. Once you've boarded the gondola, you're off on a 30-minute panoramic ride high above the beautiful state capital. From there you can see the Frauenkirche, the old city hall, the Allianz Arena and the sheep and chickens that live on one of the skyscraper roofs at the Ostbahnhof.
