    Gollinger waterfall
    4 more images

    Here the river Salzach falls 75 metres down in 2 steps.
    Only 3 kilometres outside Golling, it can easily be reached. From the parking it only takes about 10 minutes to reach the bottom of the waterfall.
    There is a path leading up aside the waterfall. This path is very decent, but not easily accessible with f.i. babystrollers or wheelchairs (see pictures).
    You can go on a bridge to have a close-up view of the upper part of the waterfall (see pictures).

    The waterfall is not accessible in winter. It can be visited from may to october.
    It's not as impressive as f.e. The Krimmler waterfalls, but it's certainly nice enough to make a special stop if you happen to be in the neighbourhood.

    The walk from the entrance to the source takes about 30 minutes.

    The entrance fee is (2014):
    € 2,50 for adults
    € 2,00 for adults with "Gästekarte"
    € 1,50 for children (6 - 14 y.)
    € 2,00 for groups (from 15 people and up)
    € 1,00 for schoolgroups
    € 6,00 for the familycard (2 adults and their children 6-14 years old)
    If you have the Salzburgerlandkarte, you get one free entrance.

    Gollinger waterfall - the path before the falls

    Gollinger waterfall - the mill
    4 more images

    The path leadin up to the falls goes through the forest.
    Along the way you'll pass this old mill.
    The path from the entrance to the bottom of the falls is accessible with a childrens' stroller that is quite 'flexible' (see pic. 3).

    Pictures 4 and 5:
    When walking from the parking lot towards the path leading up to the falls there is a small brigde to your right. Here you can take a path through the woods - path nr. 456. We haven't taken it yet, but I think it leads to the village of Golling.
    I quite like the view on the river you have from this point.

    Golling Baerenhuette beer garden at the Bluntautal

    A beer tip, this drink is very refreshing, it's beer from Styria (one of the Austrian states), with lemon juice. The brand's name is Gösser. As you can see, I drank one of these at the beer garden of the Baerenhuette in the Bluntautal.

    The gorge or canyon Salzachöfen, "the place where the Tennengebirge mountains break through the chalk of the Dachstein to the Hagengebirge mountain range and fall away 80 metres"(text from: http://www.golling.info). Admission fee. Because of bad weather, we only reached the first platform. Well worth the visit!

    From Golling we drove up into the mountains until we finally came to this mountain pass, the Pass Lueg. There's a monument here to commemorate the resistance of a local band of soldiers against a group of French and Bavarian military men (1809).

    From Golling we drove to Abtenau, and with the use of our booklet Wonderlijke karstbronnen ('Miraculous karst springs') we made a walk to the nearby Tricklfall and Dachserfall. We found that the water indeed seems to discharge miraculously from the rocks.

    River Salzach in Salzach��fen
    4 more images

    From Pass Lueg it´s only a few steps to the natural sight of SALZACHÖFEN". At the end of the last Ice Age a cliff broke through between Tennen- and Hagengebirge. The cut through of the river through the chalk cliffs of the Dachstein is over 80 metres deep. The rock walls show numerous signs of erosion due to the rotation of the flowing water. At the most interesting point, the “Dome”, the rock walls seem to completely close. Since the beginning of the 19th century the natural sight, Salzachöfen is open to visitors. Also a worthwhile visit is the 1763 built church, “Maria Brunneck” at the peak.

    It takes you about 1 to 1.5 hrs. to walk into the gorge and come back again. You get marvelous views on river Salzach. It is also possible to wlak back to Golling from here which will take you about an hours walk.

    Opening Hours
    Visiting times are daily from the beginning of May to the end of October. Walking distance from the car park is 5 minutes.

    Admission
    € 2,-- (Adults)
    € 1,10 (Children)
