Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The water of the Wimbach, which flows underground in the rear Wimbachtal, comes in this gorge with a loud roar to the surface and crashes spectacularly over steep waterfalls down into the gorge. Along the steep rocks, bridges and footbridges lead past the impressive natural spectacle through the 200 m long gorge.
The gorge is accessible only from below, after the Wimbachschloss you come back to the starting point via another route.

If someone wants to do the Ramsau round trip, which also starts there, then you have to go right after the gorge downhill, otherwise you will not find the entry way. Is wrongly signposted. Otherwise you keep going uphill and waiting for a turn to the right.

The dominant rock of the gorge is the Dachstein limestone, which was deposited in the Upper Triassic. Numerous fossils in the walls of the gorge testify that here once a sea must have existed. During a hike through the gorge up to the Wimbachschloss you can pass a period of about 50 million years. The rocks occurring here are the Flaserkalke, Rotkalke, Radiolarite and chert leading limes.
