Barefoot Hiking in the East of Berlin

An Experience from Vayu-Institut Berlin

Event Description

In this sensory hike you will tour the picturesque forests of the Berlin East and learn to walk barefeet on different grounds through the forest. You will connect with nature through the earth beneath your feet and experience the forest from a different angle.

The hike starts in the south-east, just outside the gates of the asphalted Berlin, where several paradises for barefoot hiking lie. The length and duration of the routes is between 2-8 km and a hiking time of 2-4 hours, which can vary depending on the mood of the guests and weather conditions. On diverse forest grounds and meadow paths, sand, moss, foliage, dry or wet grass, clay and earth soils you walk serenely through the forest. At a small, crystal-clear stream, the group takes a break and dips their feet in the water. This feeling, to feel all these undergrounds under your soles is wonderfully exhilarating and lets you perceive your surroundings much more intensively. Especially in the second section you notice how you automatically slow down and learn to feel nature. At the end of the hike, you've spent a morning in the forest, trained your mindfulness, sharpened your coordination skills, and strengthened your immune system.
