Sigmund-Thun-Gorge in Kaprun

The Sigmund Thun Gorge is a fascinating natural monument that has been formed over thousands of years by the Kapruner Ache river. The 320 metre long gorge, whose walls rise up to 32 metres in places, offers a breathtaking experience of water and rock. The wooden footbridges and bridges provide a safe and spectacular route through the gorge, where you can experience the thundering waterfalls and impressive rock formations up close. Information boards along the way provide an insight into the history of the gorge, which was first opened up to tourists in the 19th century. The combination of natural beauty and history makes the Sigmund Thun Gorge an unforgettable excursion destination for the whole family.
