Tree top path
You learn the forest from an entirely new perspective. You walk at a height up to 30 m on a comfortable wooden pathway which is perfect for prams and wheelchairs as well.
The house upside down
The optical illusions are multiplied in the house upside down and you will be even part of them. It´s really crazy: In this house, which indeed stands on its roof, everything is totally twisted. In addition, it´s tilted sideways and forwards and confuses our perception pretty hard. A unique perspective – you have to experience it. Like a fly on the ceiling. Just walk in…
