Nothklamm Gorge

Nothklamm Gorge

For hot summer days.

During the summer there’s just no place as refreshing as Nothklamm Gorge near Gams. Wooden walkways lead you further into the beautiful nature of Gamsbach Creek. And, to top it all off, there’s also Kraushöhle Cave to visit. Rock formations and natural waterworks give the hike a truly unique character.

The walkway – spanning a total length of 700 metres – takes you into the gorge and make you feel like you’re floating. The best thing about this place are the refreshing temperatures in summer. But don’t walk too fast, there are many things waiting to be discovered! Above your head are some amazing rock formations and below your feet the roaring waters and fossils of snails and other shells. Make sure you pay attention to the details: seemingly boring lichens become true wonders of nature and small caves the discovery of the year. All the while, the water splashes down the riverbed and make the whole ravine vibrate.

High up on the list

Stones of all colours and shapes and the wild roar of the water in your ears – sounds everything but boring, right? We heard that some of the inhabitants of Gams come here every day to discover new magical places for themselves. Avalanches occur frequently in winter and during the summer season you can sometimes see the traces of them, when behind every corner there’s a new rock formation to see. Wildly romantic is how some would describe the gorge, thrilling is what others might say. We say both are valid descriptions depending on whether you discover the gorge with your heart or with your brains.

The Nothklamm Gorge is part of the UNESCO Global Geoparks Network.

Man glaubt es kaum, aber mit der Geologie kann man ganz schön viel Spaß haben. Das merken Alt und Jung vor allem in der GeoWerkstatt, wo man dem Namen gemäß selbst Hand anlegen und aus Steinen, die man vorher gefunden hat, wunderschönen Schmuck oder andere Souvenirs anfertigen kann. Bei einem Workshop lernt man spielerisch, was sich vor Millionen von Jahren hier wohl zugetragen haben muss.

Geo at heart.

A small village with a long history. And we aren’t talking about hundreds or thousands of years - nope, more like millions of years. Stones, fossils and other finds that you can stumble across even when just going for a walk are proof of the fact that this town is simply steeped in history. And that there’s a lot to learn here, especially when you take a guided tour through the GeoZentrum Centre, hike the GeoPfad Trail, grind stones in the GeoWerkstatt Workshop or visit Kraushöhle Cave or Nothklamm Gorge.
