The first part of the walk takes you through Talbachklamm gorge, which has a special charm in winter. The small rivulets entering the gorge from the side form bizarre ice sculptures. From Untertal-Dorf you then walk up to the sunny plateau of Rohrmoos. Along the route there are several opportunities to stop for a refreshment.

Author’s recommendation

The walk is also a good option for the evening. There is lighting along the entire route. Additionally Talbachklamm gorge has its own discreet effect lighting. The lighting through the gorge is switched off at midnight.

Der erste Teil durch die Klamm war sehr schön. Aber die Tour dann als Rundtour über die Zufahrtsstrasse zur Hochwurzen auszuschreiben, ist nicht empfehlenswert. Man läuft ständig an der recht stark befahrenen Straße entlang. Das hat mit Winterwanderung nichts zu tun. Es ist besser, die Klamm wieder zurück zu gehen. Auch der Abstieg zum Parkplatz ist nicht schön, weil doch ziemlich glatt.
