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.

  • If you are, be sure to visit this Gorge, which is simply worth a visit! On well-maintained paths and footbridges we go through the Gorge and down outside rum again

  • Very dramatic timber staircase climb through the gorge. The reservoir at the top with the Kitzsteinhorn as a back drop is a lovely spot  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 👍🏻👏🏻
