4 The Saalachtaler Forces of Nature
At the foot of the Loferer- and the Leoganger- Steinberge and in the off-shoots of the Steinernes Meer, nature has created natural monuments over the course of time. The beauty and the incredible power of these natural wonders can hardly be surpassed and together they make up the Saalachtaler Forces of Nature.
In the last ice age, the Ödenbach between St. Martin and Weißbach carved deep into the rock creating the 400 m long and 80 m deep Vorderkaserklamm. The exciting path through this natural spectacle passes over 51 walkways and 35 stairways. The natural bathing area Vorderkaser is situated in front of the gorge. This is an ideal destination for a family excursion with its iridescent bathing ponds and many barbecue sites.
The Lamprechtshöhle is one of the largest caves in Europe and with its 51 km expanse is the largest passage cave in the world. One part of the cave is open to the public and easily accessed. Here you can wander around 700 metres inside the mountain. This is an unforgettable experience even in bad weather.
In the same way, the Seisenbergklamm in Weißbach bei Lofer came into being at the end of the last ice age. Due to its position at the foot of the „Naturpark Weißbach“, a visit to the gorge, which lasts approximately 1 hour, is an ideal starting point for several hikes. Guided tours with the Gorge Spirit are an unforgettable experience, particularly for families with children.
The Saalachtal Forces of Nature are only 2 km apart from each other and guarantee adventure, fun and excitement for the whole family. They can be reached easily via the Bundesstraße 311, the Tauern Cycle Path and the ALMErlebnisBus.

Anyone who has ever visited the Salzburger Saalachtal knows the imposing and impressive view up to the Loferer Steinberge.

A particularly beautiful and rewarding destination is the Schmidt-Zabierow Hut at just under 2000 metres above sea-level on the edge of the Großer WehrGrube. A climbing practice area is situated directly next to the hut where you can let off steam.
