Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the contact restrictions on Wald Abenteuer?

On the ground and in the climbing courses, the generally applicable contact restrictions apply, as everywhere else. However, people who have to keep the minimum distance from each other can still book the same start date in the climbing park. All you have to do is keep a minimum distance of 1.50m from each other at all times. We have taken every precaution to ensure that this is possible. However, we rely on the cooperation of our visitors and guests to ensure that this is always adhered to.

Details and the always current version of the contact restrictions can be found here for the park Velbert (NRW) and here for the parks Bad Neuenahr and Leiwen (Rheinland Pfalz).

Do we have to wear a mask at the climbing park?

In Bad Neuenahr-Ahreweiler masks are no longer compulsory.

In Velbert-Langenberg masks are no longer compulsory in the forest. Only in the toilets a mask must be worn.

In Leiwen there is no obligation to wear a mask.

During a height rescue, the affected guest should wear mouth and nose protection. Our guides carry masks just in case.


Do we have to wear gloves in the woods with you guys?

Gloves are not mandatory, we have several points in the forest where you can disinfect your hands. Please be careful not to touch your face. You can still buy gloves on site or bring your own.

Do you guys do openings during the week?

Of course. For groups, school class and team events. Please contact us at:

Can we come climbing with our school class?

Yes, we love to host school groups. You are welcome to plan your class trip with us already.

The date can be cancelled at short notice, depending on whether the excursion is possible or not.

The same rules apply in the park as in the school, but in addition our admission conditions must be observed.

Classes from year 6 onwards are currently allowed to climb on our adventure course.

5th graders can climb on the kids course.

More info:

There are more of us than you can currently fit in, can we still book?

Of course. We then have to divide your group into two briefings and you must absolutely adhere to the distance regulations. The best thing to do is to send us an email:

Is it right to reopen the climbing parks ?

We are, of course, aware of the social debate about the speed and framework of the easing measures. We do not want to and cannot take a position in this debate. We can only adhere to the official guidelines, a different line would not be justifiable under many aspects.
