Monkey Business in Kletterwald Viernheim 2018 I
Let’s have some fun at Kletterwald Viernheim, going from tree to tree on wobbly bridges, zip-lines and Tarzan swings. Even though this may seem scary, you are always secured by 2 safety lines attached to your harness.
Donations are welcome in my green bag on my backpack.
For more information see:
As you can see, there are multiple difficulty levels, so if you have never done this, you can start on the easier and lower tracks (2-7). Don’t worry: everyone gets an instruction before starting. For those with experience, tracks 8-13 offer great thrills; make sure to go for the big Tarzan swing at the end of track nr. 13!
14 Euros for 3 hours, including gear, which is a great deal, since most other venues charge 20 for the same thing. Nevertheless, this Kletterwald is at least as good as the more expensive ones; it has an excellent ‘flow’ that limits waiting times, even when it gets busier. Please note that Credit Cards or EC Cards are not accepted – only cash.
We will meet at the reception of the Kletterwald at 10.30. It usually takes 30 minutes to get registered, and another 30 minutes to get geared up and instructed. This means that we will be ‘in the trees’ from approx. 11.30 – 14.30.
The ones who get there first (supposedly people who go by car) can start filling in the AGB (Allgemeine Geschäftsbedingungen) which are on the table between the two trees.
What to bring:
* Sporty outfit, adjusted to weather conditions
*Hiking or running shoes with soles that provide good traction
*Recommended: Cycling gloves
* Lunch, snacks and drink (at the Kletterwald you can only buy candy bars and soft drinks)
There are lockers where you can leave your backpacks and stuff. Usually we share one locker with 2 – 4 people.
How to get there:
* By car (or bike): set your GPS at one of the following addresses:
Kirschenstrasse 136, 68519 Viernheim
Am Kirschenweg 6, 68519 Viernheim
The Kletterwald is located at the end of the Kirschenweg opposite Waldfriedhof (cemetery), on your right. If you continue on ‘Am Kirschenweg’, you will find a convenient parking lot on your left.
* By TRAM: Take tram no 5 from Bismarckplatz at 09:08 in direction Weinheim and get off in Viernheim Bahnhof at 09:58. I’ll be waiting for you there at 10 o’clock and we’ll walk the 2.1 km to the Kletterwald together. If you are coming from somewhere else you can look up the timetables here checking the radio button “An” and introducing the arrival time which would be 10:00 o’clock.
I kindly request you to regularly check the comments at the bottom of this page because that’s the place where I will publish all changes and add important information to make things work out as smooth as possible.
