Höllentalklamm gorge


... a helluvan experience

The Höllentalklamm is a unique natural spectacle in the Alps.

Do you crave wild romance? Then a hike through the Höllental gorge is just for you. You can discover the pristine charm of pure nature with all your senses. The Hammersbach stream with glacier run-off carves its way down through the high mountains, tumbling over boulders and dropping over cliffs into pools with milky foam, roaring and thundering along the way.
Some of the adventurous sections of the trail go through electrically lit tunnels where you can hear the dampened pounding of the wild water through small windows. Especially on hot summer days it is a pleasure being in the gorge with its cool and humid climate.

The little Höllentalklamm museum is located near the entrance (Höllental-Eingangshütte).
