A hidden natural spectacle reveals itself to hikers at the head of the valley called Ridnauntal: the waterfalls of the Burkhard Gorge, which can be reached by following a panoramic trail.
Starting from the mining museum in Maiern, a marked hiking track leads through shady coniferous forests alongside the Fernerbach, a babbling glacial stream. The romantic, approximately one metre wide hiking trail winds through meadows and forests, past lush mossy expanses.
The wild glacial stream tumbles over a steep precipice that is surrounded by trees and bushes. Wooden bridges lead to panoramic observation decks with breathtaking views of the bizarre Ridnaun mountains and the secretive heart of the vast gorge, enabling hikers to experience the amazing contact with the power of nature up close.
Starting from the mining museum in Maiern/Masseria, a marked hiking track leads through shady coniferous forests alongside the Fernerbach, a babbling glacial stream.
Coming from Sterzing/Vipiteno follow the signs to Ridnauntal/Val Ridanna. Follow the street until the end (mining museum in Maiern).
