4.8/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • טיול נחמד של כשעתיים, מעבר הרים עם מדרגות מעץ לאורך נהר שוצף, בסופו מפל והדובדבן אגם טורקיז שאפשר להמשיך לטיול מסביבו (בקצהו בית קפה ואזור משחקים) 
  • 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
