Description: The Almbach Gorge is one of the prettiest in the Eastern Alps. After the parking lot, you will pass an attractive inn, next to which you can view the marble mill (worth a look- makes round balls out of stone). A few steps beyond the marble mill, you will have to pay a small entrance fee (discount if you have a visitor's card Kurkarte). As you proceed, you will notice that each of the bridges and overpasses is numbered. The trail leads up through the deeply cut gorge, past thundering waterfalls and crystal-clear pools.

I have written this report to assist others should they wish to attempt a similar trip. I have included times in the report which may seem a bit irrelevant or too much detail, but I have included them to give someone an idea of just how long things take. This is not intended as a relaxing holiday for us as we like to keep on the move and pack as much in as we can.
Canal Boat


We have previously spent 5 weeks touring Germany (with the inclusion of Prague) and another 5 weeks touring Switzerland and the Dolomites. This time we chose the German Alps, Austria, Western Czech Republic (Bohemia) and Saxon Switzerland. We travelled 2,726Km and spent approximately 280Euros on fuel and 730Euros on campsites and stellplatz (parking for RV with electricity).
