We walk in the footsteps of Sebastian Kneipp and we learn that Kneipp treatments do not only have to do with water.

The Kneipp path starts at the church in Acletta. During a visit to the cool church, we get in the mood for the trail. Then we read the information board in front of the church, which provides information about Sebastian Kneipp. On the way, other information boards point out refreshing or restorative Kneipp treatments. We bathe our elbows in the cold fountain water, lie in the meadow just to listen and smell, or walk with bare feet over pine cones. As a finale, we have a stream crossing ahead of us, secured with a rope. A guaranteed tingling experience. We stay on the left side of the stream and walk to the viewpoint at Clavau Su, where we have a beautiful panoramic view of the mountain and the valley.


If you still feel fit enough, you can continue the tour to Caischavedra and add the Senda dils Laruns theme trail. The cable car takes you back down to the valley.


The Acletta stream carries a lot of water in early summer. Then it's better to cross the bridge.


Take a bath towel with you


From the valley station of the cable car we hike uphill to Acletta to the church. This is where the Kneipp path begins. We follow the paved road up a bit to the junction. At the fountain we find the second panel. Now we follow the road to the right into Val Acletta, which shows up again immediately afterwards. We hike uphill and uphill until we reach a junction again. We go straight ahead further and further into the valley. On the way are the information boards about the trail. Before the end of the Kneipp path there is a bench on the left. Then cross first cross a small watercourse, then we are at the stream where a rope is stretched for the Kneipp users. On the other side of the stream we follow the hiking trail until we reach a hill. Now we turn right back into Val Acletta and cross the stream again. A few meters further on we reach the road on which we came from Acletta. So we hike back to the valley station on the same path.
