Gorge - Salzachöfen

A very special paradise for the whole family lies close to Golling, about a half-hour south of Salzburg. A rock cathedral and mega zip line make the Salzachöfen an exciting and enjoyable expedition for all, through a gorge formed by the River Salzach.

Salzachöfen Gorge

The Salzachöfen is an imposing natural monument, a chasm forged between the Tennen- and Hagengebirge mountains that allows visitors to experience the primal power of nature in spectacular ways. This particular excursion is ideal for the family – and not only on hot days in summertime.

Discover the uniqueness of mother nature

In a tour lasting about 2 ½ hours, you will come to a natural cathedral that has been sculpted out of the rock over the course of thousands of years, purely by the force of water. During a guided expedition through the gorge, a ranger will explain flora and fauna as well as the history of this very special place. Thanks to an 800 m long zip line, you will also be able to enjoy a ride just above the mists billowing up from the thunderous water below. If, despite a very stringent safety regulations, the zip line simply isn’t your thing, there is also a safe footpath leading along the wall of the gorge.
