Mr. Tom’s Tree House
Step into the fairy-tale world of Mr. Tom’s Tree House, an enchanting space for forest picnics and relaxation.
The tree houses perched high in the trees resemble nests and serve as iconic landmarks.
With names like “Moon House” or “Yawning Tyrannosaurus,” these 5 m2 tree houses each have unique shapes.
In total, you’ll find eight tree houses and two log cabins for your stay.
The forest playground, shaped by the natural topography of the forest, is a kids’ favorite.
It offers a variety of unique play areas, including a zip line resembling a witch’s broom, a 2:1 seesaw, and a cobweb made of ropes to spark children’s imaginations.
All play facilities, except for the slide, are crafted from trees. Visitors can also enjoy a popular workshop where they can create puppies, deer, or name telegraphy with materials obtained from the forest.
Every evening at 18:00, a bonfire program by the workshop ignites, offering an hour of roasting and savoring rice cake sticks and marshmallows.
