The Kitzlochklamm gorge in Taxenbach on the edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park offers a fascinating natural spectacle.
The Kitzlochklamm is one of the most beautiful and impressive gorges in the Alpine region. Walk across the spectacular bridge high above the roaring water, marvel at the idyllic bays as well as craggy, metre-high rock walls and let yourself be enchanted by mossy stones and sunrays in the glittering water dust.
The gorge got its name from the young goats that used to come here to cool off in the heat of the summer. Visitors are not only amazed by the thundering waterfall that cascades down the rock walls, but the enormous masses of water that rush through the Kitzlochklamm gorge also make parents and children hold their breath.
For thousands of years, the Rauriser Ache has worked its way through the limestone shale and formed upright walls in the gorge.
