Schlossbachklamm - bis auf weiters gesperrt

A walk through a gorge is always a lovely experience. Deep ravines, wooden bridges and pathways right beside the water make an impression as we follow the route. The trail to the Schlossbach gorge can be started, depending on the time available, in Seefeld, Reith or Leithen. The Seefeld-Reith-Leithen trail has already been described and takes around 1 hour. At Leithen railway station, above the Gasthof Hirschen, an easy forest trail (Nr. 14) leads into the Schlossbach gorge. About half the way along you can see the Schlossbach railway bridge. This railway bridge carrying the Karwendelbahn was opened in 1913 after 3 years of construction work and even to this day is one of the most interesting and challenging stretches of rail in the Alps. It suffered under massive bombardment in the Second World War. Today it is an important link between the Olympiaregion Seefeld and the provincial capital of Innsbruck. Once the Schlossbach is reached, a wooden bridge leads over the stream and the path continues on a pleasant climb to Hochzirl. Eventually the trail leads into a tarmac road which heads past the hospital at Hochzirl and, further on, to the railway station. Trains run around every hour back to Leithen, Reith, Seefeld or Scharnitz! This track is just open in summer! Stamping point.
