Barefoot path

Short facts

  • Meißner

This barefoot path through the forest leads through imaginative stations for all the senses.

The barefoot path at the youth village Hoher Meißner is one of the popular family excursion destinations in the region.

On the 1.5 km adventure tour, bare feet feel their way through more than 30 imaginative stations - through leaves, sand, gravel or cones, over hides and hay, balancing over tree stumps, carefully groping on the ant walkway. All senses are used when listening to forest noises, determining smells and animal voices, or touching furs. The highlight is undoubtedly the mud stairs. Whoever stays clean here has lost.
