Dr. Vogelgesang Gorge in Spital am Pyhrn
A wildly romantic rock gorge with a doctorate - the longest gorge in Upper Austria and the second longest gorge in Austria!
Experience the natural spectacle of the falling water in the longest gorge in Upper Austria with a length of over 1.5 km and 500 wooden and stone steps. The gorge is also the starting point for the approx. 5-hour 3-hut hike (Bosruckhütte, Rohrauerhaus and Hofalm).
the dr Vogelgesang-Klamm is popular with toddlers up to the sprightly 80s and beyond. After getting off, you come to the international long-distance hiking trail (E 601 via alpina), where a beautiful and popular circular hike offers itself. If you are a little tired from the climb, you can rest in the Bosruckhütte, in the Rohrauerhaus or in the Hofalm before the descent to Spital am Pyhrn and strengthen yourself with good home cooking.
dr Moritz Vogelgesang was the community doctor of Spital am Pyhrn.
Since he was also chairman of the beautification association, he tried very hard to make this wildly romantic, more than 1.5 km long rocky gorge accessible, which is why it bears his name. However, it is often incorrectly referred to as the Vogelsang Gorge.
the dr Vogelgesang Gorge was made partially accessible for the first time in 1906 for the summer visitors of the time. In 1908 the gorge was destroyed by floods. In 1926-1927, the municipality of Spital am Pyhrn prepared the entire rocky gorge for hiking with stairs and footbridges anchored in the vertical rock. When climbing the Dr. Vogelgesang Gorge there are about 500 steps to climb. These stairs and footbridges are always carefully checked before they open in early May and are well looked after throughout the summer so that visitors can safely and safely experience the natural spectacle of the falling water. In 2006 the gorge celebrated its 100th anniversary.
