The famous Ivenack oaks are located in the "Forest Area of the Year 2020/2021" in the Mecklenburg Lake District. The area in the municipality of Ivenack has become famous for its ancient oaks, which are between 800 and 1300 years old. The Ivenack pedunculate oaks - which are also called "thousand-year-old oaks" - are among the oldest in Europe. The mightiest oak has a trunk circumference at breast height of over eleven meters. Therefore, the small community of Ivenack with its 800 inhabitants is gladly called an "oasis consecrated to tranquility" (quote: Fritz Reuter).
Germany's first National Natural Monument can now be visited not only from below. A 20-meter-high treetop trail with a 40-meter-high observation tower runs through the middle of the state-owned wildlife park. A walk on the peaks of thousand-year-old oaks.
The Ivenack treetop trail is 620 meters long. It winds its way up through the forest to the treetops. Here you can experience nature from a completely different perspective. The long path is enclosed by the X-TEND stainless steel cable mesh from Carl Stahl Architektur. The 40-meter-high viewing platform can be reached by elevator or stairs. Once at the top, you get a priceless panoramic view of the treetops of the ancient oaks and Lake Ivenack. Here, the X-TEND stainless steel mesh blends almost invisibly into the surroundings and becomes one with nature.
