Outdoor adventure


Rugged cliffs, thundering waterfalls, unique nature - this is how one of Austria's most exciting landscapes presents itself to its visitors. Formed by the forces of the Ötscher stream, a unique gorge system lies at the foot of the Ötscher - the Ötschergräben.

The "Grand Canyon of Austria" is the popular name for the deep gorge formed by the Ötscherbach stream over thousands of years. The well-paved path leads to the snack station "Ötscherhias" and to three waterfalls up to 90 metres high: the Lassingfall, the Mirafall and the Schleierfall. The hike starts and ends at the Lassingfallstubn in Wienerbruck or the Erlaufstausee-Schenke in Mitterbach.
