Barefoot through the moor

  • Image 1


A barefoot trail as if from the picture book: from Jakobsbad, it's one step at a time over the peat and moors to Gontenbad. A party for the all the family's feet!
The Barefoot Trail takes you over the Gonten high moors from Jakobsbad to Gontenbad. Experience for yourself the unique sensation of barefoot hiking. You’ll be astonished by the abundance of tactile sensations it affords. Meadows and streams are connected by short cobblestone or asphalt paths. There are Kneipp stations at the start and finish for convenient foot washing. The Toobeschopf Museum is at the halfway point, where you can submerge your arms in a special fountain, a practice introduced by Dr Kneipp. Gontenbad is also home to the renowned natural moor bath where you can relax your whole body as well as your feet.
