    The Kitzloch Gorge is certainly one of the most beautiful and impressive gorges in our Alpine region. The unique natural spectacle with numerous idyllic bays, towering rugged rock faces, an impressive hermitage and the spectacular bridge make the gorge a special kind of excursion for the whole family.
    The Rauriser Ache shoots through the narrow rocky slopes with unrestrained force. The crystal clear water rushes one last time between the shimmering limestone slate before it pours into the Salzach Valley. The Taxenbacher Kitzlochklamm is one of the most beautiful gorges in the Austrian Alps, located in the middle of the Salzburg region. For many thousands of years, rain and meltwater created an impressive natural spectacle on the edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park, the largest protected area in Central Europe. Idyllic bays and rugged, meter-high rock walls cast a spell over nature lovers from May to October. Between mossy stones, the rays of the sun dance like little elves in the glittering water dust. Bridges and tunnels from the 16th century open up the gorge for hikers and walkers, who can admire the natural beauties on their tour to the idyllic hermitage. A spectacular bridge high above the roaring water promises thrills for the whole family. The hike continues to the Maria Elend pilgrimage church in Embach. On guided tours, visitors learn many details about how it was formed and discover other treasures of the wild and romantic gorge such as the Ritz tunnel.

    In the summer in the high season, torchlight hikes through the gorge are offered once a week - definitely worth it in my opinion.
