Energy walk (barrier-free)

Right in the centre of Bad Gams, this wheelchair and pushchair accessible trail leads us along the Gamsbach stream to a quarry. The trail length is ideal for a short excursion with children. 
This leisurely walk starts in the Kurpark in the centre of Bad Gams. You start in front of the former municipal office and walk past the Gesundheitshotel Kipper in the direction of the Siggerigraben. The spa hotel offers you the opportunity to taste the spa's ferruginous healing water. You should not miss this chance.

You stroll through the Siggerigraben on a slight incline along the rushing Gamsbach stream, which cools on hot summer days. The stream offers many opportunities to discover nature, especially for children. Here you can playfully explore the flora and fauna at the water's edge.

The path is well paved throughout and is also very suitable for wheelchair users. After three kilometres you reach the quarry.

Gordon Freeman Fraser, energy researcher and nutrition expert, declared this quarry an energy site. Take advantage of this opportunity and recharge your batteries at this magical place for your next hikes in Schilcherland.

The hiking trail is marked "ES".
