Short description

Hiking in Sterzing is not possible without a visit to the magnificent Gilfenklamm Gorge. Thundering waterfalls, airy suspension bridges and stony paths delight hikers.

Description

The Gilfenklamm Gorge in the Eisacktal Valley is probably one of the most outstanding gorges in the Alpine region. It is cut in white, pure marble and reflects the surrounding greenish. Breathtaking.

Starting point of the tour

Entrance to the village of Stange

Destination of the tour

Entrance to the village of Stange

Route description

The starting and finishing point of the hike is the entrance to Stange, a small village near Sterzing. Immediately at the car park (the road to the village is marked) the path leads to the natural monument Gilfenklamm. A modest fee is charged for entering it.

Now head down into the valley and along the stream into the Gilfenklamm gorge, which has been made accessible by a daring system of stairs, suspension bridges and steep tracks. Exit the gorge at Jaufensteig and return to the starting point at Stange via trail no. 11b and the Reiffenweg ruins.
