Many thousands of RAPID® Fullthread screws were installed in this extraordinary timber project. The tree tower connects directly to the 1.1 km long „Baumwipfelweg“, barrier free tree-top path, which at a height of 8 to 25 meters runs straight through the Bavarian Forest.

A spiral staircase allows to reach a height of more than 40 meters, offering stunning views of the Steigerwald. The different levels of the tower offer visitors multiple viewing points over the surrounding trees as well as the inner beech and fir trees, the tree tower meanders around in such an impressive manner.
