Welcome to the SinnePfad at the Hennesee vacation region!

A trail for the whole family - here everyone can touch and try out the individual stations and test their senses at the same time.

Nature and the forest are full of undiscovered surprises, because we only see, feel, hear or taste a very small part of what it has to offer. A few thousand years ago, people's senses were even more developed. Today, unnaturally loud noises, bright colors and the hectic pace of life are dulling them more and more.

The SinnePfad offers you the opportunity to sharpen your senses again for vital, not so loud, flashy, hectic natural processes. Embark on a journey of sensory discovery. You may recognize the hammering great spotted woodpecker. But do you know how it locates its prey in the wood of the tree trunk?

Hands-on stations

10 hands-on stations on the 2.0 km long SinnePfad give you the chance to be surprised by nature in a playful way. Living SENSUALLY means being aware of your living environment and treating it with respect. We humans are in the same boat as nature.

The path

When you arrive at the portal of the SinnePfad from Hennesee, follow the path clockwise. If you are traveling with a stroller, you should use the forest path that runs parallel. It is also advisable to use this alternative route in winter or in wet weather.

Parking facilities

There are many parking options along the Hennesee. It is advisable to use the Hennedamm hiking parking lot. From there, you can use the footpath that takes you to the dam. If you prefer a more athletic approach, you can climb the dam via the 333 steps of the Himmelstreppe. Once on the dam, turn left and follow the path along the bank. You will soon see the portal of the SinnePfad.
