The Seisenbergklamm

Natural Monument in Weißbach

Where the „Gorge Spirit“ rumbles

After the first part of the walk, the rock walls appear to creep even closer together; the water seems to rage even louder and we enter the „Dark Gorge“. In order to pass through the rock passages, we must sometimes pull in our heads and shoulders.   Here we can really understand how the old lumberjacks were frightened by the clattering of the „Root Spirit“ and how the legend of the „Gorge Spirit“ arose.

 

On the one hour walk through the Seisenbergklamm, the visitor will come across the friendly „Gorge Spirit“ on the information boards along the way. Several stations describe the history of the gorge, the unique vegetation and the background to the geology of the region. The Seisenbergklamm is also a starting point for many beautiful hikes in the Naturpark Weißbach, as the exit of the gorge leads to the wonderful alm area of Weißbach.


Opening Times of the Seisenbergklamm

From May until the end of October, the natural monument Seisenbergklamm is open  daily from 9.30 am to 6.30 pm.  

 

TIP:  From the beginning of June until the middle of September, an eventful night walk takes place every Wednesday under the title, „Water and Sound“. Organized by the Naturpark Weißbach, a guide describes how the gorge was formed and used; describes the habitat of the ravine forest and tells the story of the legend of the „Gorge Spirit“. At dusk, torches are lit and the darkness of the gorge is bathed in a mysterious light. Small groups of brass musicians from the Weißbach village band perform traditional melodies, providing a musical accompaniment for the walk.
