Get to know water with all your senses.
Water cascades through a marble gorge, a 15-metre-high waterfall towers in front of you...

Welcome to the Gilfenklamm gorge

The elemental force of water

Can you hear the roar of the waterfall? Can you feel the tiny droplets on your skin? Can you smell the pure air? Can you see the sun’s rays penetrating the mist?

Embark on a hike through the Gilfenklamm gorge. Here, it thunders and roars, babbles and foams, while you walk across wooden paths and bridges towards the waterfall. The once pure white marble, painted by time in all imaginable shades of green, accompanies you through the entire gorge, with massive rock faces towering up to the left and right. The Ratschingser Bach stream has made its way through the middle. An unbelievable natural spectacle that is worth a visit for families, seniors, and nature lovers!
