NESSELWANG ALPSPITZKICK ZIP-LINE

GERMANY’S LONGEST ZIP LINE

In the Allgäu region in Germany, Adrenaline Constructions built the first Zip line to be certified by the IFT (the institute for technological development in Stuttgart) as compliant with EU regulations for cable-based people-transportation systems.

The Zip line operates in both summer and winter, and offers stunning views of the surrounding Alpine mountains. The spectacular Alpspitzbahn Zip line in Nesselwang is the longest in Germany: the two sections have a combined length of 1.2 kilometers. Riders can achieve the extraordinary speed of 120 km/h. The departure is at approximately 1500 meters above sea level, very close to the summit of Alpspitze.

Put on helmet, special goggles and safety harness and ride down to the bottom valley in an thrilling flight. A ride in complete safety: the powerful self-adjusting magnetic brake by Adrenaline Constructions handles people weighing up to 130 kilos, and automatically regulates the rider’s speed.
