With its weathered crags and pinnacles, Rosengartenschlucht Canyon in Imst, Oberinntal Valley, is one of Austria’s most spectacular natural sights. Rosengarten, literally Rose Garden, is a narrow chasm, incised into the rock by the cascading waters of Schinderbach Creek. The scenic, 2-kilometer long trail across the canyon is edged by Schinderbach Creek’s frothing white torrents and takes you from Johannes Church in Imst up to the Blue Grotto at Hochimst via a delightful series of beautiful wooden boardwalks and stone steps. It is a shaded and beautiful place rich in specialized plants, wildlife and geology that gives you a good sense of canyon scenery. On this fabulous walk you'll also experience tunnels carved through rocks, waterfalls and amazing views.
The gorge is open and freely accessible anytime; it may become impassable in inclement weather (storm, hail, heavy rain).Go to opening hours
