#1 of 13 in Things to do in Kaprun
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.

  • Today (17 August 2017) we have a walk through the Gorge. Of course we have beautiful pictures and movies made. I think there are other similar walks can be found that are longer and more impressive. What we have found is the ability to carry a very beautiful. walk around the Klammsee. Highly recommended, so do!

  • The Gorge itself is beautiful. The wooden footbridge is closely, especially if each Selfies in the Gorge will make and even photo tripods are built. Then, more is not getting through. Uncomfortable the pushing of people is behind them. The Gorge is spectacular - with fewer visitors.

  • We ran Center walk to the Gorge of Kaprun. By the Sommerkaprun map, no entrance fee the Gorge. Long it takes not through, so that it is appropriate to run afterwards to the Gorge Lake.

  • 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.
  • Great place to visit but no signs on how to get to the parking lot once you get to the end of the tour otherwise a very recommandable place to visit
  • Nice klamm although there are nicer ones to visit. Short walk. Worth while a visit when you are in the neighbourhood.
  • A very nice walk inside the Kenyon on a wooden path. It's circular, just follow the red-white signs on the way back.
