Arzler Pitze Gorge

The Luis Trenker Path and an educational trail stretch across the impressive gorge in the Pitztal valley.

In the Pitztal valley, strictly speaking from Arzl to the Inn Gorge, the Luis Trenker Path stretches its way across the wild romantic Arzler Pitze Gorge (Arzler Pitzeklamm, or Pitzenklamm). The 1.5 km long trail was dedicated to Luis Trenker (1892 - 1990), as his father came from Arzl and because the South Tyrolean alpinist Luis Trenker often used to visit the Pitztal valley. The round trail starts at Arzl at the road bridge over the Pitze river, where the Luis Trenker Monument is located.

Along the Luis Trenker Path, an interesting Tree Educational Trail has been established by the Kaunergrat Nature Park, including several information panels. Particularly popular are guided walks, as the local guides know much about the peculiarities and the varied flora and fauna of the "Arzler Pitzeklamm", a protected natural forest reserve.

Down into the deep gorge, the wild water of the Pitze river breaks its way through the rocks, fed by the surrounding glaciers. Many resting places and possibilities to play make the gorge also interesting for kids. The trail takes continuously towards the locality of Wald. Across the Benni Raich Bridge, the highest pedestrian suspension bridge of Austria, you reach your starting point Arzl im Pitztal. Schedule about 2.5 hours for this round trail.
