Description

Liechtensteinklamm is a narrow gorge formed by the Großarler Ache. It is said to be one of the longest and deepest gorges in the Alps, with a total length of four kilometers and 300m high vertical walls. It is visited on wooden trails and bridges, which are removed during winter.

The gorge was first developed by members of the Pongauer Alpenverein in 1875. But soon they ran out of money, so they asked Fürst Johann II. von Liechtenstein, who often hunted near Großarl. The sovereign donated 600 Gulden and for his generous donation the gorge was named after him.
