A Fascinating World of Rock

These wooden footbridges guide hikers through the legendary Seisenberg Gorge in Weißbach near Lofer in the Salzburgerland.

Walking through the Seisenberg Gorge, it is hard to believe that logs were once floated down the narrow mountain stream. Timber workers originally built a trail through the gorge to help them bring the wood that they had cut down into the valley with the help of the water.

The fact that the gorge has been accessible to visitors since 1831 is also astonishing. The wooden footbridges which skirt the rock faces, have of course been renewed several times in the meantime.

There are several options to choose from for gorge walks. The three and a half kilometre long adventure trail is also popular with families. Hikers can learn interesting facts about the special features of the gorge, the surrounding nature and the legend of the gorge spirit at 10 different information stations along the route.
