The fitness trail is an enjoyable fitness circuit for jogging enthusiasts. The lush forest on either side of the Wildibach river offers a beautiful setting for exercise. The route is varied, leading over grass, tree roots and around boulders, stopping at fitness stations at the prettiest locations in the mixed mountain woodland.

  • Grippy trail surface, slippery only in very few places
  • Pleasantly shady

Author’s recommendation

Don’t forget to take along something to drink, since it is certain that you will work up a sweat during one or the other exercise.
