Discover sights worth seeing, feel nature and have aha-experiences 

Garnitz Gorge (Garnitzenklamm) - 6 km

In Carinthian Gailtal Valley the Garnitzenbach steam has carved a 4 kilometre-long gorge into the rock of the Carnic Alps over the course of history - the Garnitzenklamm. On the one hand , it owes its formation to a geological fault zone in the mountains that offered less resistance to the draining water than the surrounding rockformations. The Garnitzenklamm is therefore around 10.000 years old.
