Questions and answers about your visit to the treetop walk

Can I take my dog?

Dogs* or any other animals are unfortunately not allowed on the walkway. 

In addition to the hygiene aspect, the safety aspect for animals and humans plays a major role in the prohibition of animals on the walkway. Although most owners might act responsibly and keep an eye on their animals, dogs can show unexpected behavior towards strangers or other animals. Fear of heights can also trigger an uncontrolled flight response in dogs. Unfortunately, the narrow path width does not offer any retreat or escape option for animals or for people who are afraid of dogs.

There are shady dog ​​kennels with drinking water next to the treetop walk available, which can be used free of charge.

We provide more information to you at the ticket office.

* Exception: Disabled companion and assistance dogs.

Of course, children are allowed on the treetop walk. However, children under the age of 14 need to be accompanied by an adult.

information about nature and landscape, which are specially designed for our younger guests,
convey topics of biodiversity in a playful and refreshing style.

The comic book to be purchased at the cash register is an accompanying booklet for the treetop walk. It raises questions that can be answered by
reading and looking at the panels on the treetop walk.

at the Ramsaualm
