This hiking week leads to numerous, impressive cultural and natural monuments. Within a radius of just 2 km, the Pinzgauer Saalachtal is home to three extraordinary natural monuments - known as the "Saalachtal Natural Wonders".
At the foot of the Loferer and Leoganger Steinberge ranges, along with outliers of the Steinernes Meer massif, nature has created bizarrely shaped rock formations, thunderous waterfalls, as well as one of the biggest caves in Europe featuring a subterranean watercourse, and all just a short distance apart.
Vorderkaserklamm and Seisenbergklamm Gorges
Vorderkaserklamm between St. Martin and Weissbach is 400 m long and 80 m deep, made accessible by means of numerous bridges and walkways. Before you reach the gorge, you will make your way through a natural recreation area with swimming ponds and grill areas - welcome refreshment indeed after a long hike. Seisenbergklamm was created around 12,000 years ago, when the ice of the last Ice Age melted away here in the Alps.
At a total length of 51 kilometers, the Lamprechtshöhle is one of the biggest cave systems in Europe. In the section of the cave open to visitors, you will walk along pleasant, well-lit boardwalks taking you some 700 m into the mountain and 70 vertical meters down into the mountain.
