  • We have committed the gorge with a guide. That was very informative and entertaining. The Gorge is quaint and well to admire. In good weather, it could be probably very crowded.

  • Highlight of the holiday to through this beautiful gorge walking. Care so much for good Footwear. We have parked at a free car park at griilrestaurant Hohe sonne. Which is just like the restaurant on the other side of the gap is closed on Tuesdays. So please drink on Tuesday. On some points the gap but just over 60 cm wide. Must for nature lovers
