    Beautiful natural spectacle. When it is dry for a long time and the brook leads little to no water, you can see the "cauldrons" basin that has cut the water into the stone.

    Especially with a lot of water a great natural spectacle with thunderous waterfalls.
    When there is little water, you notice that the Schwarzwasserbach flows both above and below ground.
    Below you can play well with children in the creek.

    From the bottom, the boiler holes are easier to walk / less steep (but is tarred anyway).
    Beautiful waterfalls to play with children. Above the bridge with the view of the boiler holes.

    The unique boiler holes from Hirschegg are a result of the interplay of water and limestone. The tracks of the Schwarzwasserbachs lead up to the basin and funnel-shaped depressions and can be explored on a nature trail. The boiler holes are so-called karst springs, overgrown with lush moss and often accompanied by more or less strongly bubbling waterfalls. At times, the Schwarzwasserbach is completely dried up to the natural bridge. The play of the water masses in the swirl holes is withheld from the visitor at such times, but he sees the details of the many leaching particularly clearly. With sufficient water level of the Schwarzwasserbach offers many opportunities for canyoning with the local providers in Kleinwalsertal.

    Boiler holes below. Here you have a very nice bench for a picnic and a great place to play on the water.
