Through the Pfanngraben gorge to the Rotwand

Best weather forecast for a tour this long. Summerly warm with no expected thunderstorms.


The 9-Euro ticket is filling trains and buses, but we take it easy.


Despite the delays, we catch the bus and start our tour at the beautiful Waitzinger Alm.


At first we walk on a comfortable, wide path. Only this small obstacle is to overcome.


The path becomes narrower. Deep below us, small waterfalls splash into magnificent pools.


At one point we come closer to the water and who wants gets a refreshment ;-)


A stone bridge leads over a branch of the Pfanngraben gorge.


Unmissable inscriptions at the Winterstube:

<- left to the Rotwand, right to the Spitzing lake ->.


One last, beautiful view of a few of the many Gumpen (pans) that have given the gorge its name.


We leave the Pfanngraben gorge and climb uphill through dense forest.


Heavy rain has washed away the path across a stream. People are working to repair it.


Great Masterword (Astrantia major) with a small visitor.


Great view from the Kümpflalm.


In the shade of a tree we settle for a snack.
