Cutting through pure white marble, which used to be coveted by stonemasons from all over the world and which shimmers here in every conceivable shade of green, the otherwise peaceful Ratschinger Bach stream becomes a raging torrent. By going down steep steps and over narrow bridges, you can get right down to the heart of the gorge, where a breathtaking natural scene awaits. The lower entrance to the Gilfenklamm gorge is in Stanghe/Stange, from where you walk along a level hiking trail to the entrance to the gorge, where the trail begins to climb gradually over bridges and along well-secured trails. Storming and raging, the wild waters of the Ratschinger stream tumble over numerous waterfalls, forcing themselves through narrow chasms between the steep cliff walls, which ensure that at the lowest, most impressive point - the so-called "church" - even the most dazzling sunshine is dimmed. Going from one bridge to another and up and down steps, you finally reach the end of the gorge. If you take your time, have good shoes and a camera, this hike is a memorable experience for all the family.

Sehr schöne Rundtour. Die Klamm selbst ist sehr schön und auf jeden Fall sehenswert. Die Wege sind gut gepflegt und auch mit Kindern gut begehbar. Der weitere Weg zur kleinen Burgruine geht zuerst auf geteerter Straße bergauf und bietet dabei schöne Ausblicke auf das Tal und die angrenzenden Berge. Vorallem im Frühsommer sind die blühenden Bergwiesen sehr schön anzuschauen. Zur Ruine selbst geht es recht steil im Wald auf einem guten Pfad bergab. An der Ruine selbst kann man recht gut eine Pause einlegen und bei heißem Wetter gut im Schatten eine Pause machen bevor es dann weiter hinunter ins Tal geht. Anmerkung: Als Parkplatz bietet sich der ausgeschilderte Parkplatz am Sportplatz an, von dort ist man in 15min am Eingang der Klamm.
