Dřevák Visitor Center

In the exhibition, you can touch the secrets and wisdom of our ancestors with your own hands.
You will find that the wood is still "alive" even after the tree has been cut down and can change, which can really confuse us in some cases. What at first glance seems like a mystery or great science, we will show you in a simple and understandable way.

A path in the treetops and a house on the head

This is the height of emotions: the WaldWipfelWeg in Maibrunn near Sankt Englmar shows the wonderful world of the forest from a completely different perspective: a walk at dizzying heights above the treetops (barrier-free, up to 30 meters high) and with an impressive view. And all around there is much for visitors big and small to experience: a nature adventure trail with numerous hands-on habitats and lots of animals, an optical phenomenon trail, a forest restaurant with a large indoor playground. And the "Haus am Kopf", which is unique in Bavaria and stands entirely on the roof, in which everything is simply "inverted".

Bärenbob summer bobsleigh track in Grafenau

A world first with four unique giant circuits is the all-weather bobsleigh track "Bärenbob" in Grafenau.

At the top, a 1,250 m long descent through natural terrain awaits visitors with a wonderful panoramic view of the city.
A fast ride of up to 40 km/h will bring you the joy of bobsledding, and the track is also connected to a small recreation park and refreshments with outdoor seating.

Terrain scooters

A five-kilometer descent with an elevation gain of 370 m? On a scooter? From Svatobor, which lies at an altitude of 845 m? Does this sound like strong coffee to you? On rugged terrain scooters with dual disc brakes, this forest ride is an experience of a lifetime.

Visitor center Borová Lada

The largest owl aviary in the Czech Republic
The exhibition of owls was chosen primarily for the originality of the subject, the hidden way of life of owls almost does not allow them to be observed in the wild.
You can see most of the representatives of Šumava owls here. These mostly nocturnal birds have a number of extraordinary qualities - night vision, silent flight and more.


Pumptrack Zadov


Strategy, tactics, heart pounding and most of all, great fun. This is paintball, an action-adventure game where it's not just about luck and physical ability, but above all about teamwork.

A viewing terrace is built directly above the waterfall, which allows you a wonderful view of this natural scenery.
