Photos: The World’s Longest Treetop Walkway Is Switzerland’s Coolest New Attraction
Switzerland is now home to the world’s longest treetop walkway.
Senda dil Dragun, located in the small town of Laax in Switzerland, opened on July 11, 2021, and it is the longest treetop walkway in the world. It stretches for nearly one mile through the forest and connects two Swiss villages: Laax Murschetg and Laax Dorf.
Visitors can enter the walkway from one of the two access towers and take a walk above the forest floor, at eye level with the tree canopy.
Tower Murschetg, one of the two entry towers, is 240-foot tall and features a spiral slide for kids to enjoy.
There are four platforms along the the world’s longest treetop walkway where you can stop and learn more about the Laax forest:
- Uaul Casti Platform: Here visitors will be shown what trees and plants are in Laax forest.
- Ravanasc Platform: Visitors will learn all about the birds and other animals of Laax forest.
- Dimplaun Sura Platform: Visitors will learn more about the people that inhabited this area in the Bronze Age.
- Uaul Fraissen Platform: This platform will offer perfect views of the forest and the animals.
The walkway is open all year long, and the website promises that it will be a “winter wonderful” during the festive season.
A one-way ticket for an adult to visit the world’s longest walkaway costs around $18 while a day pass will set you back around $24. For more information on Senda Dil Dragun, visit their website.
