Abstract: A necessary and sufficient condition is given for a Brownian excursion law in a Lipschitz domain to share the local path properties with an excursion law in a halfspace. This condition is satisfied for all boundary points of every $ {C^{1,\alpha }}$-domain, $ \alpha > 0$. There exists a $ {C^1}$-domain such that the condition is satisfied almost nowhere on the boundary. A probabilistic interpretation and applications to minimal thinness and boundary behavior of Green functions are given.
