There are some places that have a certain thrill factor, and this is one of them. One of the biggest climbing parks in Europe, the Fun Forest Adventure Park in Kandel near Karlsruhe makes an ideal day out for active families with children aged six and above.
The Fun Forest Adventure Park is an attraction with the X factor! More than 200 platforms and 15,000 metres of steel cable have transformed this seven-hectare woodland site into a climbing paradise full of surprises for the whole family. Safety comes first, of course, and every participant is given an in-depth induction and a climbing kit with a harness and a helmet that are carefully checked before use. Confident or experienced climbers can chose between 24 different courses depending on what they are comfortable with and what appeals to them. The courses range in difficulty and feature rope bridges, tunnels, zip wires, swings, climbing walls and even a surfboard suspended on wires for children to glide through the air in style. All that energy and determination is rewarded with exhilaration, fun and laughter, as well as fantastic views overlooking the park and the other climbers. Fun Forest Adventure Park Kandel is also home to a woodland discovery trail and a restaurant, which are both well worth exploring.
The Fun Forest Adventure Park has 17 courses – from 1m to 22m in height – offering a range of difficulty levels and including a special course for children aged six and above. And it doesn't end there – other activities include a pedal-car track and a bathtub slide, base jump, the iron course for serious climbers, a flying climbing wall and, the pièce de résistance, a 250m-long mega zip wire. So, helmet on, harness nice and tight, ropes and hooks at the ready and off you climb! There's no need to feel nervous, either. Germany's biggest climbing adventure park is run by an experienced team of professional climbing experts, who you can see practising in their team training zone. The high ropes course is ideal for those with a taste for heights and adventure. Swinging between the tree tops, climbing with the utmost care, overcoming obstacles, keeping your balance and staying fully focused on the wire – it's all possible here.
