Author’s recommendation
Keep an eye out for relics of the timber rafting era while walking the trail. You can also take bus 4070 to the gorge entrance. The bus departs once daily at approx. 8:20 a.m. during low season and twice (approx. 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.) in July/August/September during peak season. Bus services run from Brandenberg to Kramsach and to the Mariatal bus stop.
