In summer 2012, the first Czech tree-top walk was opened in Lipno in the presence of Václav Klaus who is President of the Czech Republic. A path with a length of 675 m leads to the major tourist attraction: the tree tower.
On the top platform at a height of 40 m, visitors can enjoy the wonderful view from the wooden look-out construction over the Šumava National Park and the Lipno Dam on the Vltava River. In its center, the tower includes a playground slide of 52 m length representing the longest closed slide in the Czech Republic.
In addition to RSTAB, the following add-on modules were used:
TIMBER Pro, RSBUCK, STEEL, RSCOMBI, LTB, DYNAM, END-PLATE
