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.

  • Well worth a visit when its open the views and walks are amazing
  • Very nice view at the lake, but the noise from the street is annoying :(
  • A good place to visit and watch water fall
  • Great waterfall, the road is beautiful, and you get little wet from the drops but it’s amazing and fun. TIP: after you pass the gate, go left through the stairs, you will see the source of the fall, its worth if just as the waterfall itself.(see the picture)
  • Very beautiful! It is a very short walk through the gorge, about 20 minutes and then you can walk back to your car. Short but sweet.
