Kundl Gorge

Kundl in the Alpbachtal Seenland area boasts one of the most beautiful natural canyons of Austria

Once upon a time the Wildschönau area used to be a lake, that was inhabited by a tremendous dragon. When a farmer succeeded in defeating this dragon, this creature bit the rock towards Kundl in its death agony, resulting in the emptying of this lake towards this direction. This is how the Wildschönau high-plateau emerged, and how the Kundl Gorge (Kundler Klamm) was created.

A pleasant walking trail takes you today across the canyon, from Kundl (526 m a.s.l.) to Mühltal-Wildschönau (782 m a.s.l.), lining the waters of the Wildschönauer Ache river. The trail starts in the south of Kundl at a small footbridge, overcoming the wild waters and taking to a resting area. Afterwards, the trail snakes across rock faces, which are sometimes even 200 metres high.

In 2009, the Kundl Gorge was reopened to the public after an extended period of safety activities. A visit can be combined with a journey with the Wildschönau Train (Bummelzug Wildschönau), which takes you from Wildschönau to the entrance of the gorge at a velocity of 10 kmph.
