The most beautiful gorges in eastern Austria


The most beautiful gorges in eastern Austria

Hiking Collection by komoot

In spring, when the torrents swell with ice-cold meltwater and roar their way through the rock, they make for impressive spectacles for adventurers young and old. Hot summer days are the perfect time to seek out a cooling gorge hike very close to – and if necessary in – the water. This kind of hike makes the high temperatures so much more bearable. Secured walkways, bridges and platforms get you up close and personal with the torrents and the rock faces, while the forests provide the shade.

For thousands of years, streams have been carving their way further and further into the rock, forming small pools and intriguing formations. Depending on the time of day and season, the mood in the deep gorges change and so do the colours. No Tour is ever the same twice. Some gorges are short and easy to walk through, while others require surefootedness. We recommend that you bring a rain jacket and a rain cover for your rucksack, as a gorge walk can get very wet indeed. In this Collection, we have selected the most beautiful gorges and ravines in eastern Austria so that you can start hiking right away.
