I had read about this place here on this site and knew I had to visit on our recent trip to Germany/Austria. It was a little difficult to find at first and you have to walk quite a ways but it's worth it. We parked near the Olympic ski jump and walked through the stadium, which was quite cool to see. There are horse and carriage that can take you up to the entrance of the gorge if you wish but they are a bit pricey and we like to walk. I read so many reviews that said you WILL get soaking wet, so I was all worried about my camera and brought ponchos. We barely got a few drops of water on us. The one thing I didn't see mentioned is how dark it is when walking through the caves. I'd suggest bringing a little flashlight. It was a gorgeous place and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Once past the main part of the gorge, there was a rocky area where a lot of people had built towers out of the rocks. I don't know how the idea started or now long that has been going on but it was a sight to see. Of course, we had to build our own rock tower. We choose to go back the way we went in, through the gorge,but there seemed to be at least 2 others ways to get back. Beautiful place and well worth the time.
