Forest canopy at the Sommerberg near Bad Wildbad.

Bad Wildbad is a German spa town nestled in the Black Forest of Baden-Württemberg.  We traveled there on a whim Sunday, March 26.  There’s a small mountain called the Sommerberg accessible from the below town that leads to a few great attractions for those who love the outdoors.

For just a few Euros, you can walk along the tree tops.  There’s an elevated walkway dozens of meters above the forest floor that goes on for about a half mile.  You get a birds’ eye view of, well, birds… and trees, squirrels, or whatever other plants and animals you can spot scurrying through the canopy.  At the end of the walkway is a tower that with a pathway that spirals all the way to the top.  Despite my encouragement, Ellen declined to slide to the bottom of the tower, preferring a quiet walk to the bottom.
