The "Bavarian Himalayas": This is the name of the 15-metre-high parcours in "Grüntensee" climbing park, designed for the most seasoned climbers. If you think that's a bit high for even you, let alone for the children, then you needn't worry. This high-ropes adventure course has nine other climbing routes and even a slacklining parcours.
The treetop adventure park Kletterwald Grüntensee is situated 24 kilometres south of Kempten, right next Lake Grüten (Grüntensee). This Bavarian high-ropes adventure course has ten different parcours and has been designed specifically for families with children of different ages. Children from the age of six are allowed to climb, if accompanied by an adult. You can also lead your "mini Tarzans" (must be at least three years old) over the one-metre-high "Zwergerlweg" parcours, and help them to conquer its seven elements. Another parcours is called the "Marathon", which is up to seven metres high and for children from the age of ten. Attempting to conquer the "Himalaya" takes nerves of steel. This is an up to 15-metre-high parcours for the bravest climbers over the age of 15. If you get tired of climbing, you can try out the slacklining parcours, or explore the adventure playground with the little ones. Although climbing is great fun, it certainly whets up an appetite! Thankfully, you can recharge your batteries with a tasty snack, such as "Allgäuer Kässpatzen" (egg noodles with layers of cheese), from the "Seehaus" lodge next door. During the summer months, we highly recommend taking a dip in Lake Grünten before you return home. It has an attractive sunbathing meadow with a beach and a canoe and stand-up paddle board hire place – all this just next door to the treetop adventure park.
The park website has various children's birthday party offers.
Opening hours vary from month to month and can also be found on the company website.
Directions: From Wertach-Haslach station, it is a short twelve-minute walk to the park. Head south down Grüntenseestraße and take the first road on the right after you pass restaurant "Gästehaus Ute". Please note that this road is also called Grüntenseestraße. Follow this road for 800 metres until you reach the park.
Hi! It's me, Bruno the dachshund. There's one thing I really love about the Grüntensee climbing forest: it has a real zipline obstacle course! I only had to climb for a little bit at the very start, then I was able to use the ziplines and flying foxes to criss-cross this adventure playground in the air. Normally, I'd never get to do something like this because my legs are just too short! By the end of the day, I was even brave enough to take a jump from a height of 10 metres. Do you think you'd do the same?
Our tip: Please make sure to check your train connection and the expected capacity before you start your journey.
