High ropes park Zweisimmen -

The majestic trees of the Obersimmental make fine pillars for wobbly cable bridges, tricky and varied bridge elements, amusing rope ladders, crazy Tyrolean zip-wires, daring leaps and high-speed downhill runs. Shared experiences build bonds in old and new teams alike. Our programs on and around the rope park transcend the boundaries of the ordinary. At heights of between four and twenty meters (thirteen to sixty-five feet) above the ground, you will overcome personal barriers. Secured to the climbing rope, our groups dare to perform the tightrope walk of a lifetime, leap into the void or move hand over hand from one rope to the next.
 
We also have a number of exciting team games that you can play on solid ground – where teams work together to achieve particular aims, such as crate stacking, the «Serving Game», negotiating the crocodile ditch, overcoming the spider’s web, etc. These activities draw out team spirit, trust, good organization and above all, lots of fun.
