Tips

  • Stephanie

    As you hike up wooden walkways, bridges, stone steps and small rock tunnels, you can experience the untamed beauty of nature at over 1.5 km. 200 meters in altitude
    bubbling spray, smooth stone basin and steeply rising rock make one wonder and forget the rest of the world.

    Open around the beginning of May to October. Admission free. imst.at

    Basically also suitable for children and dogs. Sturdy shoes and a good condition are required. Surefootedness is also required. Therefore, the path is not recommended for people with physical impairments.

    This tour as easy to describe is very daring. It is certainly not mega demanding but good footwear and sure-footedness in the scree passageways and steps is absolutely necessary. The specified time is not feasible by an untrained absolutely, we needed from Imst on the ravine to Hoch Imst and through the forest back 3 hours and have run normally.

    For years, a must in our Tyrol holiday. It starts in the middle of town. Affordable parking (1 € / day) can be found near the gorge or in the direction of hochimst. Although the Rosengartenschlucht is a little sweaty and sturdy footwear duty, but the nature fascinates simply. Waterfalls, tunnels, footbridges fascinate even children. The detour to the blue grotto especially on hot days is recommended. Once in Hochimst, there are plenty of opportunities for families with children. A great playground directly at the alpencoaster, the alpencoaster itself and other hiking possibilities.

    The gorge well, although it has an alpine character. Also suitable for families. Not baby carriage suitable.

    Just impressive to go through the gorge. It is recommended uphill then it is not so much on your knees.

    the way up the ravine is not as safe as some people still seem to think - well-contoured footwear, sure-footedness and a head for heights are absolutely beneficial

    Photos or videos can not reflect the impression. Do you have to live experience

    Incredible impressions. A tour for everyone. Easy for the professional. For the beginner, do not worry there are enough benches for a breather. Sturdy footwear duty.

    a great experience for the whole family ...
    we even made it with 3 dogs ...
    you should only take something to drink with nice summer weather, on the last stretch of the path in front of the lake is the heat from late morning already very - even if there is vegetation, there are very light coniferous trees don't really shade ...
    Otherwise, everything is already said by the other hikers :-)))

    Very nice exciting way. Everything well secured and accessible. However steep. But also feasible with children.

    Great way through the gorge, exciting for children. One should be sure-footed and be able to master a steep climb on uneven paths.

    A must for every trip to North Tyrol.
    Can be done without problems with children & dogs.
    We had over 30 degrees and could enjoy the cool of the gorge during the course of the route

    The Rosengarten Gorge is closed in winter and will be reopened in mid-May. Before, rock clearing work takes place. The interesting part in the middle of the path is actually closed off by bars.

    My opinion:
    Easy tour for everyone. The pro comes through well. For the beginner, do not worry there are enough benches available for a breather. In any case, sturdy footwear. Is an Alpine trail worth it. No photo or video can capture the impression. Must see man live.

    Beautiful canyon tour, with the solid footwear is worn. If you go down from above, you can hike up the other side of the forest.

    One of the most valuable biotopes in Tyrol can be visited right on the edge of the city center of Imst: the Rosengarten Gorge. Over a length of about 1.5 kilometers, the Schinderbach digs its way from the mystical Blue Grotto through the ridges of the Imst low mountain range terraces. Wooden walkways, rock stairs and small rock tunnels always provide new insights into the wonder that nature has created in the Rosengartenschlucht. The entrance to the gorge is also impressive, the houses here were partly built into the rocks. The gorge is accessible from May to October; good shoes are required for the ascent.

    When we hiked through the Rosengartenschlucht here on June 25th, 2011, our Miniature Schnauzer Buddy was still fit and could walk well - I still had to carry him a few passages - but that didn't matter at all. An exciting path that I can highly recommend.

    The entrance to the Rosengartenschlucht is at the Johanneskirche right in the center of Imst. Behind the church, the rather short hike starts on the specially created path through the gorge and leads to around 2 kilometers and 350 meters in altitude to the other end of the gorge. There is the Blue Grotto, a cave with two waterfalls created by mining, in which silver-containing galena was searched for in Roman times. In Hoch-Imst the route leads past the Gasthaus Sonneck, over the Neureitwiesen and over some serpentines to the Wetterkreuz observation point. The path then leads down to the edge of the Rosengartenschlucht and down into the valley back to the Johanneskirche.

    Absolutely to be recommended! Quite short but you break a sweat! The path is sometimes a bit wet - proper footwear is advisable.

    It is impressive how the Schinderbach has dug its way into the Rosengartenschlucht. The animals were "flogged", i.e. slaughtered, at the stream. The meat was stored cool in a tunnel in the mountain, on which the Bergl houses are now still leaning, and some of which have broken down their rooms. The alpine rose that grows in the gorge gives the rushing natural spectacle its name. I found walking uphill to be very pleasant, because there is always something to see and the water "comes towards you", which rushed abundantly after several wet and happy days.
