Beatenberg has had an adventure trail of a very special kind since the spring of 2004. The St. Beatus Play and Adventure Trail has succeeded in creating new approaches to experiences in natural settings, as well as to a rich cultural landscape. This project builds on unique cultural history, in the process lending new strength to the roots of Beatenberg. New sustainable opportunities to identify with the region are being created in the footsteps of the legendary story of St. Beatus: inspirational, thought-provoking and at one with nature. Allow yourself to become inspired by our adventure trail. Immerse yourself in a unique natural setting and experience the mystical power of the re-told Beatus legend. This is the perfect trail for nature lovers, culture lovers, children, families and groups.

 Please note: The information panels along the themed trail are in German. However, the adventure posts can still be used if you are not proficient in German.
