The Tiefenbachklamm gorge
The Tiefenbachklamm gorge


Measuring six kilometres in length, the Tiefenbachklamm between Kramsach and Brandenberg is traversed by a rushing river and offers hikers a spectacular experience, especially in autumn. It takes around two hours to complete this route along the Brandenberger Ache upstream to the Jausenstation Tiefenbachklamm, a hut serving fod and drink. At the highest point above the gorge is a viewing platform overlooking the area. The trail is relatively easy to walk and has plenty of handholds.

Trail description

The adventure begins on the right-hand side of the Aschauer Straße road. The trail leads along the rushing river, with the valley gradually narrowing to become a gorge. Follow the well-marked trail (mainly gravel) above the Brandenberger Ache river. After around 1.5 kilometres you will get to the viewing platform, the highest point of the walk. The gorge becomes ever narrower until, after around four kilometres, is opens up once again. Here, after around an hour of walking, you will reach the Jausenstation Tiefenbachklamm serving food and drink. Walk up to Brandenberg (30 minutes) and take the bus back to Kramsach. If you want, you can also walk back down through the gorge (total distance: 9 kilometres, walking time back: 1.5 hours) to the starting point. Alternatively, you can extend the walk by continuing from the Jausenstation Tiefenbachklamm upstream to Pinegg.
