More than 150 years ago, the Bavarian priest Sebastian Kneipp developed a naturopathic cure based on water, nutrition, exercise, herbs and inner balance. Scientific studies have long since proved the efficacy of Kneipp treatment. Water has healing properties: this is the premise on which Kneipp walks are based. Such walks are offered in the Val Passiria Valley within the framework of the South Tyrolean Balance initiative. Join health expert Katy Hofer to experience the reviving effect of water as you walk along the Saltauser Waalweg irrigation channel path. At the same time, you can learn how a cold eye bath can improve your sight, and why “Kneipp Espresso” – a cold arm bath – is the ideal replacement for coffee in the morning.
