Hiking as therapy

The classic hiking trail is a special type of the hiking therapy in Bad Düben moor mud baths. It distinguishes itself through performance-oriented load, full-body training, open-air stay, landscape experience. It is carried out by normal or speedy walking. Hiking therapy regulates vegetative functions of the organism. The cardiovascular system works economically, the breathing activity is stimulated, muscles, joints and ligaments are strengthened. The metabolism is positively influenced, the digestive system is activated, the calorie consumption noticeably increases. Hiking is a powerful workout for people with heart disease. Terraced paths of the Bad Düben moor mud baths provide many ways with different performance requirements. The small-scale conditions (relief, forest etc.) make it possible to adapt to the thermal reactivity according to the weather conditions and to prevent a circulatory load due to overheating. The terraced paths are classified according to the performance categories as the legend and can be found on the map.

The Düben Heath Nature Park is a range of specially selected attractions for nature travelers and great place to stay for citizens.

The Bad Düben town is a gate to the Nature Park Düben Heath (Naturpark Dübener Heide). The park was named after the town. The park covers about 770 square kilometers and is bounded by Elbe and Mulde rivers. Here you can find many health spas and learn more about wildlife. The chance to see wildlife is one of the most exciting things about visiting the Nature Park. One of the best way to explore the natural beauty of the park is on foot or by bicycle, allowing you to take your time, observe wildlife and enjoy the nature. The new Nature Park House presents a multimedia exhibition focused on wildlife, civic engagement and climate change.
