A Kneipp facility mainly consists of an outdoor foot bath facility. Usually this is a pool with cold water and handrail. The water is around 40cm deep and in most cases taken from nearby streams. For example such pools are found aside hiking routes in Germany.
Other basin types (arm basin...) are also possible. Other equipments (like benches or bare foot paths) can sometimes be part of the facility.
Create a node for the location or an area for the perimeter of the whole facility and tag it with amenity=kneipp_water_cure. Where appropriate also add:
|kneipp_water_cure:foot=yes/no||when with a foot bassin|
|kneipp_water_cure:arm=yes/no||when with an arm bassin|
|kneipp_water_cure:face=yes/no||when with a face bassin|
|name=*||Name of the Kneipp facility, as sometimes stated on a nearby sign.||It can simply be "Kneippanlage" oder something like "Kneippanlage Lauterbach", "Wassertretbecken Mehring"...|
|fee=yes/no||If you have to pay a fee to access to the facility (rare).||Some rare Kneipp basins are operated through a swimmingpool, for which you habe to pay an entrance fee.|
|opening_hours=*||Opening months if available.||May-Oct: 00:00-24:00; Nov-Apr: Off|
Optionally add the position of the single basins using nodes or areas within the area for the whole site and tag them:
As a amenity=kneipp_water_cure has often been used to tag the perimeter of the foot basin, which of course is smaller than the whole site. This is still allowed but in the future it is recommended to use tag the whole site.
- barrier=handrail: Many Kneipp basins have handrails inside them, so you may want to draw a new way for them using barrier=handrail, if you are really sophisticated.
- width=* on waterway=stream: Width of a stream (useful if the facility is in a natural stream)
- amenity=bench: for benches.
- leisure=barefoot: for bare foot paths.
- Water-treading basin
- Kneipp water-treading basin
- Kneipp-Becken (de)
- Wassertretstelle (de)
A possibility as icon would be a foot (footprint or side outline) together with a water surface.
First proposal for rendering
Kneipp facility with just one foot basin
Preferred way: tag a closed way to mark the outline of the site of the Kneipp facility:
amenity=kneipp_water_cure name=Kneippanlage kneipp_water_cure:foot=yes
and another closed way for the foot basin inside the site:
Alternatively the whole facility with just one node:
amenity=kneipp_water_cure kneipp_water_cure:foot=yes name=Kneippanlage
The old method remains allowed (but is not recommended anymore). The outline of the foot basin was tagged like that:
amenity=kneipp_water_cure natural=water name=Kneippanlage
Kneipp facility in a natural stream
It is not necessary to draw the equivalent of the basin within the stream. It is enough to draw the outline of the whole site (for example including benches) and tag it like that:
amenity=kneipp_water_cure kneipp_water_cure:foot=yes name=Wassertretanlage Birkenwerder
The exact place in the stream can be tagged as a node:
If you want to drawn the exact place in the stream as an area, then also tag the width of the stream:
(alternatively using an area tagged as "waterway=riverbank")
Kneipp facility with just an arm basin
Create a node and tag it as:
amenity=kneipp_water_cure kneipp_water_cure:foot=no kneipp_water_cure:arm=yes name=...
I kept "kneipp_water_cure:foot=no" to make clear that there is only an arm bassin but it would be even possible to do without.
Kneipp facility with an arm basin integrated in a foot basin
Tag the outline of the facility as:
amenity=kneipp_water_cure kneipp_water_cure:foot=yes kneipp_water_cure:arm=yes name=...
If a more precise tagging is wished, add an area for the foot basin within the facility:
For the arm basin a node on the area of the foot basin can be tagged like:
Kneipp facility with foot and arm basins
With the old method the outline of the foot basin is tagged like that:
amenity=kneipp_water_cure name=Kneippanlage Pullach natural=water
Here we only know; that there is a Kneipp facility with a foot basin. There are no information over other basins.
A mapper can map the facility more precisely like that:
The site of the facility is an area tagged like that:
amenity=kneipp_water_cure name=Kneippanlage Pullach kneipp_water_cure:foot=yes kneipp_water_cure:arm=yes
If the position of the different basins is known, the outline of the foot basin can be tagged like that:
And for the arm basin the following node should be enough:
