A route comprising several stages devoted to physical well-being and relaxation, in contact with the natural environment, to be experienced bare foot.
Sebastian Kneipp felt that walking bare foot was very important: it strengthens the feet and the “pain-gain” sensation on your feet stimulates the whole body and the internal organs. Set off walking in the shallow water, slowly, savouring the beneficial massaging effect on the soles of your feet created by the rounded stones and then stand on fine volcanic dust which warms your feet. Next, move on to the pool, which stimulates a positive reaction in your veins, making it ideal for anyone suffering from varicose veins. Along the route, you will find sun loungers where you relax and warm up in the sunshine, have a drink from the granite fountain or enjoy a clay wrap. Clay prevents and delays inflammation and is also highly absorbent of toxins. Circulation is improved, tissue is activated and toxins are carried into the lower layers of the skin and removed via the vascular system. As you progress along the route, there is the option of spraying your whole body with jets of cold water. They have an excellent beautifying effect if applied after exposure to the sun when the body is warm; they reduce the formation of catarrh, strengthen and toughen the body by stimulating circulation with a refreshing effect that helps to control tachycardia.

No outdoor shoes may be worn along the Kneipp path, only slippers.
At the entrance, there is a small changing area. The route must be followed bare foot. For anyone who does not enjoy the sensation of the underfoot surfaces, we recommend the external area which is ideal for enjoying the surrounding scenery. The path is suitable for adults. Children under 14 years may use the path, if accompanied by a responsible adult. There is a free-of-charge playground nearby, perfect for children to run around and have fun. Please help to maintain a calm and restful atmosphere in the Kneipp centre, a place of relaxation which is based on the principles of physical well-being in harmony with the surrounding natural environment. Please avoid making noise. Please behave with respect for your fellow guests and do not occupy the sun beds for extended periods (max. 1 hour) which are only provided to allow for some recovery time along the route.
The path is inside an environmentally sensitive environment in the Valle di Valorz, so it is vital to be mindful and respectful of your surroundings. For this reason, smoking is forbidden and no food is to be consumed along the route. It is recommended that you use the Kneipp path some time before or after eating.
No admittance for animals. No throwing stones in the lake. Recommended time per visit: 1 - 2 hours. The operator cannot be held responsible in case of loss or theft of valuables. Please notify a member of staff of any inappropriate behaviour, malfunctions, damage or suggestions.
