The waterfalls are ideally visited on the first day after a heavy rainfall. Despite the paths being more slippery, the waterfalls are at their absolute best on these days.
After rainfall you also may catch a glimpse of salamanders!
Gorge and gorges are - despite the possible proximity to municipal road networks - to the alpine areas and mountaineering with corresponding alpine dangers. These dangers include:
- self-initiated or externally triggered rockfalls and dangers common in the forest, especially after severe weather events (heavy rain, wind and snow break, branch shedding, etc.) despite annual controls
- danger of falling off the signposted paths or improper use of the infrastructure (bridges)
- danger of slipping in wet conditions and icing
- through fog
In spite of the annual infrastructural and organizational measures, appropriate equipment (see equipment recommendation) and an open eye for objective dangers must be observed.
Please stay on the signposted path!
