The Liechtenstein Gorge
The spectacle of nature in the Pongau
Finally, the time has come back. After extensive construction work due to the rock fall in May 2017, the Liechtensteinklamm is open again. Stunning, spectacular, impressive - these are just some of the characteristics that apply to the Liechtensteinklamm and the new attractions. Extraordinary, challenging, labor- and time-intensive describe the construction and restoration measures taken and the thus connected enhancements of this natural monument. A completely new gorge experience awaits the visitors. For example, the spiral staircase "Helix", which stretches 30 meters into the depth and offers spectacular views of the natural wonder Liechtensteinklamm.
Please strictly observe the safety regulations, keep the necessary distance and wear the required mouth and nose protection!
Please consider: The number of visitors staying at the Liechtensteinklamm at the same time is limited. A notice in advance ist NOT necessary.
Fascinating views and outlooks in the mountains
Liechtenstein Gorge is certainly one of the longest, deepest, and most impressive gorges in the Alps. The mighty thunder of the waterfall, the moss-grown rocks in rich green, a legendary atmosphere, and sun rays that create a rainbow in the fine water mist. The unique natural spectacle in the Salzburger Land is known for an unforgettable trip of a special kind - an experience for the whole family.
Over thousands of years, the thundering water falls and the rushing masses of water have cut more and more deeply into the mountain and have created a gorge. The rocks stand so narrow and high in places that only a small strip of the sky remains visible.
As early as in 1875, this Alpine natural spectacle fascinated people so much that the gorge was made accessible to the general public as a summer excursion destination,with bridges and footbridges, by a donation from Prince Liechtenstein. Since then, more than 10 million people from all over the world have visited the legendary Liechtenstein Gorge. No visitor can help but be fascinated by the immense impression and the almost ghostly light and shadow play in the depth and narrowness of the gorge.
The veil waterfall
At midday, when the sun shines between the rock faces and hits the fine, dust-like mist of the veil waterfall, visitor are presented with a magical picture in rainbow colors.
Keep your distance
The current distance and safety regulations also apply to your visit to the Liechtenstein gorge. Please keep at least 1 meter distance. Avoid group-like gatherings and if necessary wait until you can enter certain areas (bridges or stairs). Please wear a mouth and nose protector to protect your fellow visitors. This is absolutely necessary because the path through the gorge is a two-way path and encounters with other visitors must be expected.
