Special: night tour through the gorge
The Groppensteinschlucht is captivating both in the daytime as well as night. The gorge’s night-time illumination creates accents of light which highlight rock formations, walls, waterfalls, roots, trees and lichens. In the darkness human perception is also sharpened. The sound of flowing water is more intense than during the day, at times a roar and at others a murmur. The few stars which are visible from the neck of the canyon also seem further away than usual.
Night-time hike led by a guide
