Sigmund Thun Gorge

After our experience at the high mountain reservoirs, we drove to the Sigmund Thun Gorge. Many years ago, a glacier carved a valley into the rock here: the gorge. Today, the water roars through this section. You can visit the gorge between steep rock faces over wooden bridges and walk right next to the thundering masses of water.

Bene and I had seen beautiful, mysterious pictures of the gorge. And since we were in the area, we absolutely had to see it. But sometimes pictures can be more impressive than reality... Although the gorge itself is very fascinating, it is so crowded with tourists that it takes away all the flair... So if you want to explore the gorge in all its beauty, then you should be the first visitor!

The Sigmund Thun Gorge is open from 9 am to 5 pm during the summer months. There is also the “Klammlichter” event every Friday evening. Here the gorge is beautifully illuminated. In winter, the gorge is closed to protect the facility. We paid EUR 6 per person for admission.
