Lehner Wasserfall

excursion , waterfall , excursion tips

Powerful Waters Close-By
Roaring Alpine water cascades down 80 meters right into the deep gorge – formed a couple of million years ago. Pure energy and elemental force cast a spell over hikers and climbers.
The well-maintained hiking trail takes nature aficionados halfway up to the falls, offering double the fun: this is an experience in close touch with nature and water spray as well as a fantastic vantage point overlooking the waterfall‘s climbing area on the opposite part. Benches invite the tired hiker to take a rest or simply watch the cool sportsmen. A wooden platform at the upper end of the route provides great photo scenes. The hiking tour through the shady larch forest is easy and safe as it features a wooden handrail on the steeper sections.
A higher instance guards the trail. At the entrance to the Stations of the Cross walkers stop at Zarrach Chapel and then continue along the 14 wayside shrines to St. Mary‘s Grotto located on top.
Starting point: local heritage museum, hamlet of Lehn
Walking time, both ways: 50 minutes
Difficulty level: intermediate
Difference in altitude: 150 m

Felsensteig Strelesperre am Fischbach

excursion , buildings , various sights , viewpoints/viewing platforms

Elated Moments at the giant White Water Swirls
First the mountain brook shows its most gentle side. Bubbling waters meandering through the larch forest, until Fischbach brook reaches the huge detention basin and the up to six meter thick dam wall with all its elemental power. Tree trunks, scree and boulders dashing against the pyramid-shaped wall – a brilliant invention dating back to 1928!
Murmuring and rushing sounds are omnipresent in this water swirl area!
It’s hard to leave this enchanting platform towering high above the dancing waves. Step on the new wooden stairs and walk towards the next Place of Strength – the Suspension Bridge.
The serviced Brandalm and the small chapel, offering uninterrupted views, make a perfect rest stop before you cross the thrilling Suspension Bridge. From Burgstein, the sunny high altitude plateau, you walk down along the never-ending Iron Chain featuring the names of all regular guests who restore energy in Längenfeld habitually.
Starting point: Längenfeld center, Fischbach Bridge, follow “Strelesperre” signs
Walking time: round tour from/to starting point, 2,5 hours
Difficulty level: easy
Difference in altitude: 280 m
