Barefoot from Jakobsbad to Gontenbad.
From Jakobsbad to Gontenbad without socks or shoes! Discover at first hand the unusual feeling of walking barefoot. Experience an incredible variety of sensations. Meadows and streams are interspersed with short stony and asphalted stretches. At the half-way point at Toobeschopf you can bathe your arms in the fountain, a practice introduced by Dr Kneipp. The route then continues through the moorland landscape of Gonten to Gontenbad. Here there is a foot washing station for tired feet – a practice also introduced by the good Dr Kneipp. Take this opportunity for some rest and relaxation! Enjoy a soothing footbath in the garden or unwind in the inn’s whirlpool and steam room (bathing costume obligatory).
