In the Garnitzenklamm you hike along emerald-green, thunderous streams and past fascinating and colourful rock formations, created by the gigantic forces of nature.
Thanks to the Austrian Alpine Club section Hermagor, the Garnitzenklamm is a gorge that has been accessible since 1891. In 1900 it was already continuously passable, but floods destroyed the gorge again and again. Today the Garnitzenklamm is protected as a natural monument. Along the entire length of the path breathtaking views open up, always accompanied by the rushing waters of the Garnitzenbach. It has cut deeply into the rock, polishing it brightly and thus giving us a fascinating insight into the interior of the mountains and the rocks. But the water was not alone in its work. Many forces contribute to the creation of a gorge and a landscape. Geotrail Garnitzenklamm shows which forces are at work and how the rocks in turn contribute to the formation of the gorge.
It pays to finish the whole tour, because the 4th part is the most beautiful part of the gorge! On the way back there is a lovely little church - all worth a detour!
