This spiral walkway in Denmark takes you above the treetop and into heaven. Or allow me to explain it in a more detailed way. Do you know that feeling when you lie down on the soft grass in a beautiful forest and you look up at the sky pierced by the trees and you think what it would feel like to be one of the birds who sing from the top of those trees and look at the sky while standing above the top of the forest? If you have never experienced it, then you’re really missing out on the good things in life and you should start with this!
This is a treetop walkway in Denmark which can cure you of your fear of heights and help you see the upper side of a forest. Dubbed the Treetop Experience and it’s a marvellous piece of engineering and architecture. It was designed by Effekt Architecture and it is placed in a preserved forest south of Copenhagen. The Gisselfeld Klosters Skove, by its real name, gives you the opportunity of a bird’s-eye view of the treetops, something you have never seen in your life so far.
Although it runs up to a 148-foot-high observation tower, the spiral walkway is so gloriously built that you won’t suffer from fear of heights. There are also two routes you can take: a lower one which will lead you to the younger areas of the forest and a higher one which will give you a view of the oldest part of the forest and trees. When the sky is clear, you can also see parts of the Turning Torso in Malmo, the Copenhagen skyline and the Oresund Bridge.
Trees, lakes, creeks, wetlands, the peaceful rays of sun passing through the trees and the light breeze of the wind and clear air is everything you’ll experience while walking up to the observation tower. The whole ensemble is a marvellous architectural feat.
According to the Camp Adventure website, the spiral walkway “creates a unique opportunity to take a walk above the treetops and experience the stunning nature of the preserved forest from another perspective. The tower and treetop walk is as a seamless continuous ramp that makes the forest accessible to all – regardless of their physical condition”.
Now, let's take a look at it! What do you think? Is it worth a trip to Copenhagen?
