Questions and Answers

Question: Do I have to train before being able to climb the courses?

Our courses don't require special fitness - nevertheless, it helps. If you're in "normal" shape you will be able to climb the courses since we offer various levels of difficulty. The only restrictions are a certain age and minimum body height for some of our courses.

Question: How old must children be to be allowed to climb at all?

Children with a minimum age of 7 years may climb on all courses if accompanied by an adult (provided they are of a minimum age and height); from 14 years and older without an accompanying adult – and from 16 years also on the black course.

Question: Is there a weight limit for climbers?

Yes, up to 120 kg.

Question: Is climbing open in all kinds of weather?

Dress for the weather, but in strong winds or thunderstorms we close the courses for your safety.

Question: Can we celebrate our kids' birthday at the K1?

Of course. We offer 2 activity programs with fun and outdoor games for birthday parties, to make this a special day. When climbing with a group of birthday kids, keep in mind, that children under 14 years must be accompanied by a climbing adult. One adult per 2 children. If you need support here, we can provide you with a K1 trainer as a personal climbing guide - but please book in advance. If you choose one of our activity programs we will organize the challenges, games and climbing activities. With 6 or more guests, the birthday child is free.

Please, bring the signed "Declaration of consent" for under-age guests. For more information, please check out the Link "Birthday at the K1" on this website.

Question: What is the procedure before climbing?

After you have filled out the registration forms you will receive the safety equipment. A K1 trainer will check and assist you in putting on the climbing gear. At the introductory course, we will teach you the techniques and safety routines. And just to be on the safe side, you will take your first steps on the introductory course under the watchful eye of the K1 safety trainer.

Now you're ready to climb on the courses, maybe starting with the easier ones first before climbing on the difficult ones. But in any case, our trainers will be close by in case you would need assistance.

Question: What if I'm up there and can't finish the course?

Our safety trainers are always nearby and are well trained to get climbers who are stuck, safely back to the ground. So don't worry, we'll be there to help you.

Question: Is climbing safe?

The whole K1 Waldseilpark is built according to the international safety regulations of the ERCA (European Ropes Course Association), and inspected by the TÜV (Technical Supervision Association). You'll receive professional safety equipment and instructions on how to use it from our trained safety instructors. By always using both of the snap hooks the right way, you will always be secured with at least one snap hook and of course follow all safety instructions carefully.

Question: What is the highest point in your courses?

It's ca. 43 feet high (13 meters).
