The Kaiserklamm is a spectacular Alpine gorge to the north of the Inn Valley. There, visitors can experience the power of the water at close quarters and follow in the footsteps of Empress Elisabeth "Sissi" of Austria-Hungary.
Centuries ago Emperor Franz Josef and his beloved wife Sissi would often come to this romantic gorge deep in the Brandenberg Alps. It therefore soon became known as the "Kaiserklamm" (Emperor's Gorge). Over many millennia the water of the Brandenberger Ache river has cut a path through the rock towards the Inn Valley. Today there is a well-maintained hiking trail along the gorge, giving visitors the chance to see and feel the crystal-clear water at close quarters. Those who are brave enough can even jump in at some of the shallower sections or take on the rapids in a kayak. On the way back we recommend stopping off at the Kaiserhaus near the entrance to the gorge, where – of course – the imperial couple used to dine. The inn has a large adventure play area and a petting zoo.
