Galitzen Gorge Waterfall Trail


Take a walk like no other, along a well maintained boardwalk at the very edge of the wild stretches of Galitzen River’s whitewater. Marvel at the relentless power and beauty of nature, and see how the deep and narrow Galitzen Gorge near Lienz in East Tirol was created. Trillions of gallons of water are forced into this accelerating trough—the sight will take your breath away! Tumbling over cliffs and down steep-sided ravines, waterfalls add a delightful extra dimension to this walk along mighty rock faces. The rock bridge offers amazing views of lofty Lienz Dolomites Range. A stone ball mill demonstrates the “grinding” power of water. A 210-meter long via ferrata allows breathtaking views of the gorge. It takes about one hour to complete; climbing gear is available for rental. Little ones will love the adventure playground, a one of a kind play area that allows kids to create their own play adventure. The creative formula includes stone, wood and water.
