    Near Altenthann begins the small, formerly wild-romantic-looking gorge. It is surrounded by heavily weathered rock formations of sandstone. A stream, which springs near the St. Vitus Church in Althentann, gave the gorge its name. In the further course there are numerous springs and after about a thousand meters the stream is called Höhenbach. It flows near Ochenbruck in the Schwarzach. At the top of the ravine, where coarse-grained and hard sandstones are submerged by softer ones, a small fishpond was artificially created. In 2013, a wide, gravel forest road was built through a part of the gorge and thus impaired the picturesque appearance.

    Also in the winter really fantastic for hiking! It also leads the Way of St. James.

    Every year at Easter the Tannbachschlucht is on the walking plan and it never gets boring. A beautiful place
