The Vorderkaser Gorge

The Vorderkaser Gorge (declared a natural monument in 1977), which lies between St. Martin and Weissbach was first opened to visitors in 1882. Between 12,000 and 14,000 years ago, when the glacial ice had melted, the Ödenbach stream started to work its way slowly through the hard rock (on average 6 millimetres a year). Today the gorge is already 400 metres long, 80 metres deep, up to 6 metres wide at the top and 80 centimetres wide at the bottom. To reach the entrance of the gorge (2,5 kilometres along an access road after leaving the main road no. 311) visitors pass through a natural recreational area with bathing lakes and park areas where guests can have a bar-b-q. Free car parking is available at the entrance to the gorge. Gorge and snack-bar inn are open from May to October! www.naturgewalten.at
