Impressive gorge, lots of photo opportunity and good value for 4 to 5 euros. Reservoir at the top makes for a nice walk and suitable for young children with facilities half way round. Quiet when we visited but the walk ways are quite narrow so imagine at peak times it gets pretty busy.

It had rained quite a lot so the water was in full force when we visited. We walked from the centre of Kaprun in the rain but you get wet in any case walking through the gauge so didn't matter. It brightened up at the top so we walked around the small lake. Very picturesque. Free with summer card.

We visited here on a rainy day as other reviewers had said it was ok in all weathers and we were not disappointed. The gorge is narrow and very interesting and you access it along a boardwalk. It takes about 30 minutes to walk through the gorge and there is a lovely lake at the top which you can walk... More

The gorge is well worth a visit. Easy to climb and great views on the way up. A nice walk around the lake at the top.

This walk is like a 1 to 2 hour round trip taking pictures and all. No big elevation differences. Do not forget to watch the movie on the construction of the hydro-electric dams up in the mountains in the information centre.

Been there a couple of times and it's still allways amazing to visit. The boardwalk trail is very well mentained and leads in an easy walk thru the gorge. At the end of the trail you can walk around the Klammsee lake.There is an admission fee, however some cards (Kaprun Card, Salzburger Land Card, etc.) cover the fee.

This gorge is just a must, if you are staying somewhere near Kaprun. I have been there couple of times and it still amazes me what water can do. You can visit the gorge in any weather, but the best time is after heavy rain, as there is a huge mass of water going through. The lake at the end... More

The trail was a well maintained boardwalk that hugged the cliffs of this gorge. The power of the stream could be felt as you walked over the water rushing through the gorge. The trail is one way with a gate at the top that prevents people from turning back and causing traffic jams on the stairs/trail. Having hiked lots of... More

Lovely walk through the gorge and around the lake, free with the Kaprun Summer Card. Easy to reach by bus (ask the driver) or there is a car park.

Been twice now and found it just as spectacular as I did the first time. Be sure to wear the right shoes though. This time the water was running much faster and the spray had made the boards a bit slippy on the hand rails and under foot in parts. Still well worth a visit and even more so when... More
