Pathways through Lammerklamm Natural Monument
The Lammeröfen have been open to visitors since 1884. From the starting point in Oberscheffau, well-maintained walkways lead young and old alongside steep rock faces and above raging waters through this fascinating gorge. Shortly after the entrance, you will come to the so-called “Dark Gorge”, the most beautiful section of the Lammerklamm.
You can also explore the gorge by water: Guided tours by canoe, raft and even inner-tubes allow you to experience the torrential masses of water up-close. Further information can be found under Sport and Active.
Long or short hikes through the Lammerklamm
A hike all the way out and back to the starting point takes around one hour. The short hike lasts about 30 minutes and leads from the starting point to Landgasthof Lammerklause. You can also have a car or bus pick you up at Landgasthof Lammerklause.
Sturdy shoes are recommended for this hike!
A brief overview of the history of the Lammerklamm
Prior to the last Ice Age, the Lammer cut a narrow V-shaped valley into the mountain. Due to the melt-off from the glaciers thousands of years ago, enormous masses of water poured into the valley and carried the rock away piece by piece – and so it was that Lammerklamm Gorge was created. The gorge truly is an imposing example of the erosive power of water. Interested? If so, learn more about the history of the Lammerklamm for yourself!
