More information

From the Ennstalbundesstraße B320 from both directions turn to Wörschach and follow the signs to the Klamm parking lot.
Already from the center of the village the way to the Wörschachklamm is signposted. From the gorge parking lot it is about 15 minutes up the stream to the Klammstüberl - the entrance to the gorge. Immediately behind it, the Wörschachbach is already roaring through its rocky streambed. The path leads partly on footbridges and bridges uphill. The rocks on both sides of the stream move closer together and leave only a narrow gap to the top - very impressive how the water has dug through the rock here. It takes about 30 minutes to reach the gorge exit. From here the character of the landscape changes: you walk through a large basin with tall mixed forest up to the lookout bench near the Kohlstatt, where charcoal was once produced. After this apex, the trail descends in sunken paths through the forest and you pass the sulfur spring (close your nose) and continue to the donkey ranch - a small refreshment stop with a petting zoo. From there it is only a few minutes to the historic Wolkenstein castle ruins with the still well-preserved castle walls. From the oriels you have a magnificent view over the valley. From here you can reach the starting point or Klamm parking lot again in about 10 minutes.
