The barefoot trail around the idyllic Härzlisee, located at 1860 m above sea level, is unique in the mountains. On the 220 m long trail, the focus is on experiencing nature and promoting general well-being. Not only is it a great pleasure to walk, feel and experience the changing surfaces (sand, wood chips, pebbles, clay, water, etc.) without shoes, but the foot massage of a special kind circulates the blood to the feet and thus has a positive effect on the entire organism; the cardiovascular system is improved, the immune system is activated and vitality is strengthened according to the Kneipp principles. The barefoot path is suitable for young and old alike.

In the "tickle pot" the feet enjoy a pleasant massage in warm water. Wellness for the arms is offered by the "Chrüselitrog", in which the arms are alternately dipped into warm and cold water.

Author’s recommendation

Beside the tickle path at the Härzlisee there are 5 fireplaces with different seats.
