Hiking trails lead through this unique, deep gorge with waterfalls, ice chunks, bridges and tunnels.
The Hoellental Gorge is closed in winter. Depending on the snow conditions, the gorge opens at the end of May or the beginning of June and is usually closed again after the 3rd weekend in October. For up-to-date information, please refer to the website of the German Alpine Club.
During opening hours the gorge is open 24 hours a day.
Every year in spring, the Hoellental Gorge is cleared of ice and snow with considerable effort, damage is repaired and the paths, bridges and tunnels are secured and made accessible.
You cannot cycle through the gorge, not even with a wheelchair or pram.
The gorge has cool temperatures even on midsummer days, water drips from the walls and in the tunnels and sometimes runs on the ground. You should wear good hiking boots and a rain jacket.
Please consider that the Hoellental Gorge, in spite of the good development of the ways, is part of a rough nature and therefore special attention and caution is necessary.
Dogs may also pass through the gorge on a leash if they cross bridges and are not afraid of water.
