- Brief description
If you like water you will love this tour to the Breitachklamm Gorge! An easy hike on varied hiking trails from Riezlern along the small river Breitach – occasions for resting and picnicking included.
- Starting point
- Best season
All around us water is running down the rocks, gurgles in tiny rivers across the hiking trail into the Breitach. It seems as if one could watch the Breitach unify with its many small and larger side creeks in order to plummet through the gorge some meters further down. Occasionally you can walk down from the trail to the river's gravel bed, take a sip of cool water, build small cairns out of the pebble stones or stretch your feet into the clear water. Highly recommended: a visit to the gorge "Breitachklamm". Be a testimony of how the once calm water plummets down untamedly between narrow cliffs.
Diagonally across the casino turn into Leo-Müller-Straße. Follow the Fellhornweg (turn left) and the signs to Breitach (Waldhaus). Behind the small horse farm turn on a small path that takes you down to the gorge. After the bridge keep to the right and continue along the river Breitach. Pass by the Waldhaus. After approx. 15 minutes you reach a bridge marking the boarder crossing and walk on until the entrance of the Breitachklamm Gorge. After the stairs you reach the bridge where you can follow the sign to the Gorge with point of arrival Tiefenbach. Otherwise you walk up a steep gravel trail to the Walserschanze and take the bus back to the starting point.
