Tips

  • Christofer

    The Massendorfer Gorge is a gorge about 300 meters long, 50 meters wide and up to 20 meters deep in Burgsandstein. Here, a small stream, which rises at the top of the gorge, buried deep in the Burgsandstein. By under-flushing, some half-caves have been created. In the gorge, the layers of the Burgsandstein are clearly visible on the basis of outcrops and rock formations.
    The gorge is freely accessible year-round. South of Massendorf there is a small parking lot, from which it can be reached on foot in ten minutes. After rainy periods and snowmelt it is slightly more difficult to access.

    Through the gorge, some signposted trails lead.

    The gorge is a great experience with the many eroded rock formations and winding paths.
    Unfortunately it was quite dry with us, so that many mosquitoes were to be found in the standing puddles.
    We also spent most of our time alone and met only one family all the way, so relaxed.

    In rainy weather, a beautiful waterfall can be seen in Müllersloch!

    There are rather few gorges in West-Central Franconia. This is easy to walk through. Attention mosquitoes 😉

    Attention slip hazard! Due to the constant humidity in the gorge, the ground is sometimes slippery. The crossing is still worthwhile.

    Briefly:

    - The entry point is hard to find

    - many mosquitoes

    - great scenery is worth it

    The gorge is very nice to walk through and belongs to the regional highlights.
    Downhill leads on the left side above the gorge a challenging MTB trail, which can alternatively be hiked for a circular path.

    Idyllic gorge, formerly used as a haven for "robbers" or similar people. Either up along the ravine or down and scour the small caves.
