The canopy pathway with observation tower.
The centrepiece of the experience of „Panarbora“ park is the 40 metres high tower, from which you can enjoy from the viewing platform a panoramic view of „Bergisches Land“. From here one can reach the longest and wheelchair accessible Treetop Walking Path in NRW to discover the nature from a totally new perspective. On a walking length of 1.635 metres it leads on a roundtour through the different vegetation zones.

Leisure facilities in the nature adventure park
The adventure playground
The water- and adventure playground is adressed especially on our little guests.The contact with several nature materials is encouraging the senses and the creativity of the kids in a various kind. The playground is stimulating the kids to loose their shyness of “outside“ and to move themselves again more in the nature. Especially the motoric encouragement of infants is central. Various climbing frames are providing the coordinative development of the kids.
The hedge labyrinth
An evergreen hedge labyrinth appeals to all senses of our visitors in a varied kind. The awareness, especially the sense of direction, will be eminently appealed here. The labyrinth is offering numerous potential solution processes. Sometimes a hedge labyrinth is stretching its visitors to their personal limits of frustration tolerance; for example, if the path through the approx. 2 metres high labyrinth will not target immediately.
The game tunnel
A ramified tunnel system is offering a thrilling enjoyment underneath the ground. The approx. 10 metres long tunnels have a 1,20 diameter and are therefore especially appropriate for the kids. Adults without claustrophobia are of course cordially invited to the “underworld“ of Panarbora as well.
On-site a huge map is showing various leisure time tips outside of Panarbora.
