Wolfsklamm in Stans, Tyrol



A dreamlike gorge with wild and romantic rocky mountains as an excursions destination to which you can hike directly from the Hotel Schwarzbrunn. The Stans River has milled its way through the area between the pilgrimage place St. Georgenberg and out little Tyrolean village Stans for thousands of years. The gorge has been a tourist magnet here at the Karwendel Mountains since 1901 and can be enjoyed by hikers, mountaineers and families.


The Wolfsklamm Gorge, with its wild torrent, is several hundred meters long, whereby the gorge can be reached via 324 steps and an ascent of 254 meters altitude difference. The gorge ends on the mountain itself  at a 12-meter-high weir. The Alpenpark Karwendel Nature Reserve (no longer open to tourists) begins here. On the other side of the mountain we can return to the valley. 


The Wolfsklamm is open from approx. the beginning of May to the end of October. Admission is free for guests of the Hotel Schwarzbrunn.
