Short and fascinating hiking tour

Kaiser Gorge in Brandenberg


Spectacular hike through the gorge

When the mercury climbs, the sunglasses are ready to hand and you're wondering when it's going to be heat-free in the office, you urgently need to cool down. In Alpbachtal you will not only find this on the mountains, such as the Wiedersberger Horn or in the numerous lakes, but also on an impressive hike through the gorges.

The Kaiserklamm in Brandenberg is an absolute natural spectacle for all outdoor fans. The gorge is also an exciting adventure for kayakers and white-water sports enthusiasts. The Kaiserklamm is still an insider tip among the excursion destinations in Tyrol.

Due to safety reasons, the gorges are not accessible in Winter between 6. November 2022 and end of April 2023 and on days with heavy rain in Summer.

Hiking through the Kaiser Gorge

Once you arrive at the Kaiserklamm car park, a 300-metre-long forest path leads to the entrance of the gorge.
Here you can already hear the turquoise-green water of the Brandenberger Ache rushing and from there a narrow path leads for about one kilometre through the narrow rock gorge of the Kaiserklamm.

The further you go into the Kaiserklamm, the more impressive, rough and varied the route becomes. The power of the water can be experienced particularly well here.

The humid climate between the steeply sloping rocks makes the well-secured path somewhat slippery, so good walking shoes and concentration are required. With this scenic backdrop, concentration is not always so easy.

During the hike you will also pass information boards about the use of the gorge as a timber drift. Until 1966, the power of the Brandenberger Ache was used to transport tree trunks from the high valley into the valley.

Afterwards, the path becomes more leisurely again, the Ache broader and the landscape lovelier.

Here you will find many beautiful places to spend a relaxing time in the midst of diverse nature and maybe even to dip your feet into the cool water of the Brandenberger Ache or have a short picnic.

The hike through the gorge is free of charge!

In the footsteps of the empress

Imperial dining

But what should never be missing is a stop at the Kaiserhaus afterwards. Emperor Franz Josef II and his wife Empress Elisabeth visited the gorge in the Brandenberg Alps and spent the night in the Kaiserhaus. Hence the name: Kaiserklamm. At the Kaiserklamm inn there is also a large adventure playground for children.
