The Schwarzach Gorge near Schwarzenbruck in the state of Nuremberg has been protected since 1936 and is one of the 100 most beautiful geotopes in Bavaria. Not without reason: The eponymous river, the Schwarzach, has dug its riverbed through the sandstone over time. Impressive rock faces, caves and rock overhangs were created, inviting you on a hiking tour.

With a little imagination and from the right angle you can see a rock formation that looks very similar to a dragon's head.
To the Schwarzachklamm itself,
The Schwarzachklamm has been protected since 1936 and has been awarded the official seal of quality "Bavaria's most beautiful geotopes".
Along the Schwarzachschlucht you get to the "Gustav Adolf Cave" It got its name when the Swedish King attended here after a battle in the Thirty Years War (1632), a sermon of the Nuremberg Pastor Cornelius Mareius. On the ceiling of the cave is a tablet with an inscription describing this moment.

It is not for nothing that the Schwarzach Gorge has been awarded the seal of approval "Bavaria's most beautiful geotopes". A beautiful path always leads along the Schwarzach through the gorge, where the small river pushes its way through the rocks. Easy to walk, sturdy shoes are recommended, the path leads past beautiful and bizarre rock formations, as well as two caves and a spring. Adventure playground for "young and old".

The entire gorge has been a designated 41-hectare nature reserve since 1936 and bears the cadastral number NSG-00300.01. The main reason for the defensive position is the wealth of mosses. In addition, mixed forests with beech, pine and spruce are to be found directly on the river Erlen-Auwälder and on the slopes. Due to the restrained use of forestry, the deadwood regularly remains.
