Gorge Salzachöfen

From the nearby Mountain Pass Lueg it is only a few steps to the "SALZACHÖFEN". This is an impressive sight; the place where the Tennengebirge mountains break through the chalk of the Dachstein to the Hagengebirge mountain range and fall away 80 metres.The rocky walls are full of immense cavities and swamps carved out by the gushing waters. At the ‘dome’ - considered the part most worth seeing - the rock walls seem to close up completely.


The "Salzachöfen" can be visited from the beginning of May till the end of October. It is a 5-minute walk from the car park, a 60-minute walk from town.
