Treetop Trail

Join us for a magical journey through Bavaria’s enchanted forest, resplendent in its winter glory.

Our hotel is the Hohenauer Hof, which looks out onto the market square of the sleepy village of Hohenau, with balconies throughout offering excellent views of the surrounding countryside.

Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the area from the comfort of your coach, as we sweep past lush valleys and work our way round towering mountains, including the Großer Arber – the highest peak in the Bavarian Forest range.

We discover the region’s glassblowing & skiing traditions, explore the town of Passau and visit a husky farm, before being treated to spectacular views over the forest at the Neuschönau Treetop Walk.
PACKAGED ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrival
We arrive at our hotel with time to spare before dinner

Day 2: Bavarian Forest & Joska
We set off this morning for a truly scenic drive through the Bavarian Forest’s wintry countryside, passing the Großer Arber, the region’s highest mountain. Our journey concludes at Bodenmais, where we visit Joska Crystal Adventure world for a fascinating glass blowing demonstration. Later in the afternoon we are taken for a horse-drawn sleigh ride, followed by a visit to a skiing hut with snacks and entertainment provided.

Day 3: Passau & Hohenau
Today we visit the city of Passau, where we are taken on a guided walk to discover the history and culture of the town which sits at a confluence of three rivers. After our tour, we are free to spend some time exploring Passau. We return to Hohenau and enjoy a magical evening torch-lit walk with a guide from our hotel.

Day 4: Husky farm & treetop walk
We pay a visit to a husky farm this morning, where we have a guided tour focusing on the housing, feeding and training of the dogs. We enjoy a hot drink at the farm, before heading off for a stunning guided walk through the treetops at Baumwipfelpfad (Treetop Path), in the village of Neuschönau on the edge of the Bavarian Forest. Make your way through the highest echelons of the forest, pausing to learn and explore along the way, then ascend the 40m high viewing platform. A beautiful piece of architecture in its own right, the viewing tower guides you up a spiral - slowly emerging above the treeline to be rewarded with incredible views over the sprawling forest.

Day 5: Departure
We say “Tschüß” to Bavaria and make our way home.
