The parent company, Erlebnis Akademie AG, has been in the market of incentive and adventure tourism since they were established in 2001. Adrenaline centres and rope parks were included among the first projects. Lam was the largest in Europe, and the same can be said for Libín within the Czech Republic.
The first treetop trail was created in 2009 in the Bavarian forest near Neuschönau. Until the completion of the Stezka Treetop Trail in the Krkonoše mountains, it was the longest trail of its kind in the world.
The Bavarian trail received an enthusiastic welcome from the public, as well as from specialised visitors. This was confirmed by several awards including the Tourism Award Bayerischer Wald 2009, the Founders’ Prize Niederbayern 2010, Wood Construction Prize 2010 and the Bavarian "arturo" architecture prize.
Encouraged by their success, the company started to work on other projects in the treetops. The second was the Bohemian Lipno, followed by a resort on the island of Rujana, in 2014 a trail was added in the Black Forest near Bad Wildbad and two years later in Saarschleife. In 2017, the sites in the Krkonoše Mountains and the Slovak village of Bachledov went into operation.
Thanks to its success, Erlebnis Akademie AG can be proud to be the largest developer and operator of outdoor areas in Europe. From this privileged position they want to continue to strengthen and regularly open trails in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and other parts of the world.
The company is listed on the Munich Stock Market.
