A rather unconventional way of taking a stroll is to combine the phenomenon of well-being and walking. Located at the river Erft, a few hundred metres long path inspires visitors to walk barefoot for an entirely new experience.
Following the invitation to remove shoes and socks leaves the weary to then walk over seventeen different surfaces. Gravel, mussel shells and stones, to name just a few examples, take turns with soft sand and soil to provide relaxation for “tired and spoiled city feet.”
Besides the unusual sensational experience, walking barefoot is said to be good for the circulation and muscles, thus contributing to an overall feeling of well-being. The barefoot path is located at the Berghäuschensweg in Neuss.
Beyond that, many open spaces entice hikers into the surrounding countryside.
