Power place Salzaklamm

Open
Along the river Salza, this hike leads through the gorge - a refreshing circular hike for hot summer days!
The Salzaklamm is one of the top 5 power places in Mariazell Land: Treat yourself to your personal time-out with a cozy picnic at the power places of Mariazell Land. Power places have a striking, unique appearance and possess a special energy.

Comfortable, but in places challenging hike through a narrow, romantic forest valley, marked throughout. Ideal for families, but smaller children need a little support from time to time on the partly narrow paths (a back carrier would be ideal).At the end of the gorge there is the possibility to branch off to the "Gußwerker Rundwanderung".
