Deep in the Sauerland forests our friend has found his home. The forest dweller with the nimble paws, the bushy tail and the white fur on his belly lives in the trees and proves his climbing skills there again and again. In search of fruit and seeds, the little hero is always around. One adventure chases the next. We're talking about Kappi the squirrel, of course.

Kappi is the mascot of Erlebnisberg Kappe . That's why you'll find him here, too, of course. The cuddly companion of young and old joins the adventurers in their adventures. Already at the foot of the mountain the guests are welcomed by Kappi, before it goes then on wild journeys with the Sommerrodelbahn or high out in the Kletterwald . His pride and joy is of course Kappi's own playground. That's because it's not only his own retreat, but also the place to go for some downtime. While the kids can let their imaginations run wild and let off steam with the loving design of the adventure playground, the adults relax and watch the colorful goings-on of the little guests.

Did you know that...

...squirrels do not hibernate? They are much less active in the winter than in the summer, but even here they at least move around for a few hours every now and then. So they are in hibernation. On summer days, the small rodents roam around mainly in the mornings and afternoons, so they like to take a nap at lunchtime. In autumn, however, there is no rest. Then it is called to collect food and to build up winter depots. These are plundered during the cold season when there is a shortage of food. Hiding food also has a positive effect on nature: Kappi and his friends contribute to the spread of shrubs and trees.

Squirrels retreat into tree hollows or their tree nests. The latter, by the way, are called goblets. With an interior diameter of up to 15 cm, the rodents have their place here. As a rule, only one squirrel lives in a hutch. An exception are the litter boxes in which mother and offspring find space together. Most of the time, one squirrel even uses several hutches.

On the nature discovery trail, which directly connects to Panorama Erlebnis Brücke , you have the opportunity to learn much more about the forest and its animals. Kappi is your companion and explains nature to you at 14 different stations, which really invite you to join in. In addition to a lot of interesting facts, the main focus is on experiencing and participating. Families and groups of children and young people have the opportunity to prove what they have learned in the forest quiz.

For those who want to discover the forest from the squirrel's perspective, we recommend a ride on the Fly-Line in Winterberg. Between the treetops along it goes in a comfortable sitting position on a leisurely ride in the middle of the Sauerland forest and through the treetops. In addition, it goes over sections of the Bikepark Winterberg, where there are some perspectives to discover, as usually only the squirrels get to see.


So Kappi takes you on a discovery tour into his world of adventures, is at your side as a local guide and is looking forward to many special moments with you at Erlebnisberg Kappe .
