Starting from the village center, follow path no. 56 past the church to the left of the municipal office in the direction of Café Rosemarie. Turn left at the first farm, straight ahead you will see the "Brandstadl" mountain which is reachable by gondola. At the next crossroads turn left again towards the village. Enjoy the wonderful view of the Wilder Kaiser. Immediately after the Hotel Kaiserlodge, turn right twice and follow the sidewalk downhill until you find the 5 pillars on the left and the entrance to the "Kneipprunde". The theme trail leads you past energizing stations and revitalize our senses. At the end of the forest path, take the path on the left side back until you reach the church again. There are several refreshment stops nearby and below the municipal office there is a cold water basin for legs and arms.

Variant suitable for buggies:
At first as described above, up to half of the "Kneipprunde" - turn left at the bridge after the ancient stove, where a paved path leads back to the village center. (The ground in the second half of this path is a little uneven, so we recommend leaving it out.)

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 circular walking trail leads on past the church to Café Rosemarie (trail no. 56). This is followed by another ascent to the village, passing the Wiesenhof farm on the way. 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.
