Short description

If you like water you will love this tour to the Breitachklamm Gorge! An easy hike on varied hiking trails from Riezlern along the small river Breitach – occasions for resting and picnicking included.

Description

All around us water is running down the rocks, gurgles in tiny rivers across the hiking trail into the Breitach. It seems as if one could watch the Breitach unify with its many small and larger side creeks in order to plummet through the gorge some meters further down. Occasionally you can walk down from the trail to the river's gravel bed, take a sip of cool water, build small cairns out of the pebble stones or stretch your feet into the clear water. Highly recommended: a visit to the gorge "Breitachklamm". Be a testimony of how the once calm water plummets down untamedly between narrow cliffs.
