A magical place, which I visited in September. The region is called Waldviertel, in the woodlands, north of the Danube River in Lower Austria. Breezy and cold even in hot summer. Dark blue, green, black, and rusty. The Ysperklamm gorge, impresses with a natural spectacle of clear, icy cold water that rushes over high rocks and narrow ravines, impressive waterfalls, and spectacular rock formations.
Bridges, staircases, wooden walkways, and steps make the approximately one-hour ascent of the Ysperklamm easier and take you through the characteristically narrow ravines, and past several waterfalls large and small.
Here you can experience the thunderous natural spectacle and freshen up and cool off in small shallow water zones full of clear and icy cold water along the path.
The Druid Trail is a direct continuation of the Ysperklamm Trail. This trail invites you to explore mysterious stone arrangements of old rocking stones, which are typical for this region, such as the “Grand Cup”, the “Sitting Dog” or the “Stone Circle” (the Druids’ meeting place).
