Liberated feet not only inspire the senses, they are also good for health. Walking barefoot allows for fatigue-free walking, even on ascending paths in the mountains.  The path is supplemented with 10 posts, which make the walk a varied experience.

The 10 posts: 1. Barfüsserbrücke, 2. Säumerpfad, 3. balancing act, 4. "Let's call it wellness", 5. via ferrata Nagelfluh, 6. Zapfenstreich, 7. auf dem Holzweg, 8. gegen den Strom, 9. Steinreich and 10. Meersicht.

Author’s recommendation

Combine this with the tickle path at Herzlisee. Your feet will be delighted.
