Best Hikes to Zammer Lochputz
  • From one of the oldest hydroelectric power plants in the whole country, anyone can now advance through tunnels, paths and bridges into the wild natural beauty up to the 30 meter high waterfall. The operators emphasize the mystical atmosphere that lies over the Zammer Lochputz, at the waterfall you can see a huge stone bull looking at the head of a young water nymph.

  • It goes over bars into the gorge. Spectacular insight into the power of water. It takes about 30 minutes.

  • It is recommended to be there relatively early, as it is quite crowded and you can not enjoy the great atmosphere.

  • Small but fine gorge. On the walls you can also discover climbing hooks of adventurous climbing tours around the waterfalls.

  • A nice round through the gorge.
    This gorge “tells” about the hydroelectric power generation there for the region.
    An interesting mix of natural spectacle and energy generation.
    There is still a fine playground for the little ones to discover.
    And when the weather is nice, you can also "kick" water ...

  • Afterwards, when the weather is nice, you can sit down just a few steps away on the "beach" (gravel) on the banks of the Inn and relax a bit or put your feet in the water.
    You can also see the mouth of the Lochbach, which comes from the gorge, into the Inn.
    (During our visits, this worked wonderfully, but there may also be other times and water levels when one should rather do without...)

  • The legend tells of the tragic career of the mysterious bull, which was once a shepherd and asked for the hand of the water nymph.
    Today the gorge belongs to a hydroelectric power station. From the total amount of water (per second 1000 - 2000 liters depending on the season) up to 550 liters per second are used to generate electricity. The power plant, built in 1924, is one of the oldest in Austria.

  • Stairs and tunnels lead from one of the oldest hydroelectric power plants in Tyrol to the Lötzklamm.

  • Worth seeing gorge in which the use of water power is explained in a small group. Impressive waterfall with well-developed paths.

  • Very beautiful gorge, but not very long, after that I recommend climbing the Rosengarten Gorge to Hochimst
