The Eddis Edersee Erlebnistour family hiking trail is a short hiking trail for families on the Edersee, which ideally complements the existing hiking trails in the Kellerwald-Edersee Nature Park and National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site).

Hiking fun, hiking experience and information are the focus of the hike on the 4,8 km long main route. Children and parents alike will discover exciting and informative hiking fun through the realm of rustic beeches on the adventure tour. The family hiking trail is characterized by a short walking time, little difference in altitude and 13 free family fun adventure stations.

The circular hiking trail runs on mostly natural paths and paths from the Edersee wildlife park to the treetop path, via the rustic path back to the wildlife park. The start and end point for the 4,8 km long main route is the wildlife park. For the very small hikers there is also a small Eddis Edersee adventure tour of around 2 km in length. The start and end point for this is at the ticket office of the treetop path. At the two starting points, the children receive Eddi's adventure hiking map with lots of information and a competition.

When developing the family hiking trail, emphasis was placed on using the existing, family-friendly infrastructure. The provision of free parking spaces, good connections to public transport and family-friendly rest stops with public toilets are also part of this.

This family hiking fun is the first quality hiking trail according to the new criteria of the German Hiking Association for short trails with a focus on "Family" in Hesse.
