    Wutachschlucht

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    We hiked the Wutachschlucht from the Wutachmühle to the Schattenmühle (about 13 kilometers). Good footwear and sure-footedness are recommended. Some passages are quite narrow, stony and slippery. Walking sticks are more of a hindrance here. You can take the hiking bus to the shadow mill at the Wutachmühle or vice versa. An overwhelming hike.

    Haslachschlucht

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    Described as the little sister of the Wutachschlucht, the Haslach gorge has nothing less to offer. The developed trail leads through the narrow gorge, down to the water and high up, you are always spoiled with wild romantic views of the natural jewel. Highlights are the viewpoints Hölloch and Rechenfelsen.

    Some condition is required to overcome the differences in altitude, especially to get to the two viewpoints.

    Lotenbachklamm

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    Here I can find peace and tranquility away from the public traffic of Wutach. Wildly romantic it is, again and again you cross the Lotenbach, over boulders over stairs and look at cascades over which the brook runs playfully in the direction of Wutach.

    The path is secured with bridges and boardwalks, but sure-footedness and sturdy footwear are still required.

    Breitachklamm

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    The waters of the Breitach rushing through a narrow gorge from some hundred meters high, partly overhanging rock walls, falls over rock ledges further into the depth and sprayed thereby fine water drops, which create a mystical mood. An unforgettable natural spectacle.

    The Breitachklamm is the deepest canyon in Europe, which can be hiked to a length of 1.5 km on well-traveled and secured paths. On hot summer days it is refreshingly cool, in winter the gorge is one of the only open ones at all.

    opening hours
    Summer season: From 9 am - last admission 5 pm - closing 6 pm
    Winter season: From 9 o'clock - last admission 16 o'clock - closing 17 o'clock

    Hausbachklamm

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    With its wildly romantic waterfalls, small bridges and beautiful leaching the Hausbauchklamm is a worthwhile family excursion destination. Passing moss-covered cliffs, we continue on a well-developed path with countless bridges along the stream to Schnellers.

    In some places, the Hausbach is crossed by means of ropes or on fallen tree trunks, which is especially fun for little adventurers. On warm days, cool pools invite you to take a bath. The way is not suitable for pushchairs.

    Eistobel

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    The path through the Eistobel is a pleasure, especially on hot days because of the shady path and the "proximity to the water". Of course, it unfolds its very special magic in winter when the Boschungen disappear behind the walls of huge icicles. A dream in white.

    From the center of the village leads a enchanted seemingly path through the Tüfelsschlucht to Allerheiligenberg. On the easy walkway you will discover behind each winding a new little magic land of caves and crevices, covered in green - and in the middle our way leads us over bridges and footbridges along the Cholersbach.
