Walk in the footsteps of Kneipp's philosophy. The energizing circuit walk runs right next to the Treffauer creek. From the town center follow the road downhill towards the south until you reach the "5 pillars" on the left. A path leads down in the forest where you find the first station, the barefoot path. Continue to the open-air inhalatory, where salt water trickles on fir-branches and cleanses the airways. Thereafter, you train on the veins stairs, relax at the mediation place and find the answers in the eagle labyrinth. Then the path climbs gently and brings you back to the village. The walk ends at the church with a cooling water basin for arms and legs.

Turn-by-turn directions

Walk in the footsteps of the Kneipp philosophy. This Kneipp energy circuit runs along the Treffauerbach stream directly adjacent to the village. Follow the street away from the centre until you reach the “5 pillars”. The first station is already waiting for you down in the forest: a barefoot path provides stimulation on different types of ground, from mulch and pebbles through to peat mud. Continue to the open-air inhalatorium, where salt water trickles onto pine brushwood and clears the airways. Try a training session on the vein steps, meditate in a clearing and look for answers in the Adlerlabyrinth. Once you are finished, the path leads you back to the village via a gentle climb. The circuit ends by the church located at the meeting place, with a chance to cool off in a walking pool and an arm dip basin.
