Sigmund-Thun-Klamm, Kaprun
(4.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Explore the gorge that slices the Kaprun Valley in half at Sigmund-Thun-Klamm, created by a glacier over 14,000 years ago. The gorge measures 32 m (105 ft) at its deepest, and runs 320 m (1,050 ft) long, marked with rocky riverbanks, whirlpools, and holes. Explore the length of the gorge by a wooden walkway that hugs its side. As you ascend, take in the beauty of the waterfalls that rush below. At the top you'll find a picturesque lake with a reflection of the mountains in the distance. The walkway has stairs in many sections, requiring some basic physical skills, yet it is suitable for children; wear comfortable shoes with good traction. Note that the ascent and descent are two separate paths. Facilities are located at the halfway point. Before you head to Kaprun, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Kaprun trip itinerary maker, to make sure you see all that Kaprun has to offer, including Sigmund-Thun-Klamm.

  • This is the Gorge, which in Austria is enough. The tour does not last long, but the end is impressive, which is unusual. A stream of water from the Lake is neskurečný. To other activities it is possible to bypass the Lake, or stop for a coffee at a restaurant. Parking at the entrance was without issue.

  • Amazing beautiful place this gap, it can be chilly, even in summer. Not expensive, many stairs in the beginning, through the Gorge. (sometimes smooth by the water). At the end is a bit confusing which side you're on. We are still all the way to a small lake walked back (recommended). You will then arrive in a park where a small wooden coffee buffet, perfect for a good capuccino with Apple strudel. The way back to the car is something hard to find, we have recovered the way with some scrambling, but it was clear that this is not the right route. Not suitable for people with walking difficulties.

  • Attempted Sigmund-Thun-Klamm after a visit to the Krimml Waterfalls and although a lot smaller equally stunning. You can get really close and you will get a bit wet but that is all part of the experie...  more »

  • Our family visited this klamm while staying in nearby Kaprun. The entrance is just north of two so we rode bikes borrowed from our hotel - I'm glad we did as the parking was packed. We got in free with our Karpun summer cards which was nice. Unfortunately we also picked a very busy time (~11) so had people in front and behind us most of the trip. None-the-less it was a nice walk through the gorge on a wooden path hanging out into the gorge. Definitely very scenic and in a few places you basically walk under waterfalls. Great photo ops (given the narrow walkway a tripod is probably out of the question, so if you want to capture the flowing water use an app like "Slow Shutter"). I think it took us ~30 minutes. Definitely recommend.
  • Amazing tourist attraction, make sure you observe the george slowly as it is a "1 way system" as once you have opened the gate to go out, you cannot get back in
  • nice walk across the gorge-canyon. One of the must see in this area.
  • We loved this place. Don't forget to get some fruits and water
  • مكان روعه ويستحق الزياره 👍🏻👏🏻
