A fantastic walking experience

The Leutasch Spirit Gorge

Infernal water and ghostly pools, witches cauldrons and devil’s water, a fantastical world of water and stone. Welcome to the kingdom of the Gorge Spirit and his friends!

“Everyone has heard of ghosts, goblins and gnomes. They live in the untouched natural world. But only a few have ever seen them....”

From summer 2023, the Spirit Gorge is sure to delight visitors of all ages with its new lay-out. There are four different routes, each offering a fun way to discover all about the gorge. There are exciting stories, lots of games and interesting facts, not to mention the whole experience of wandering between the rushing water and the picturesque forest backdrop.

Long and Short Gorge Circuits

The long circuit takes you 3.2 km through the spectacular gorge and alongside the river, the Leutascher Ache. As you go, the spirits tell you about the gorge and its plants and animals. An easier option is the barrier-free 500 m circuit with views of the crystal-clear stream.

Another highlight is the waterfall trail. To get there, you can follow the Mittenwald route in both directions from the panorama bridge. Sturdy footwear is recommended, especially on these slightly steeper paths. At the gorge exit near Mittenwald, the 200-meter-long waterfall trail leads deep into the Leutasch spirit gorge and ends at the 23-meter-high waterfall (entrance fee required). The bus stop in Mittenwald at the railway station can be reached in about 30 minutes.

The Legend of the Gorge Spirit

Since the beginning of time, the Gorge Spirit has lived in the Spirit Gorge. He knows every stone, every bird and every tiny piece of moss. He looks after everything and everyone and settles any arguments. At least that is how it was. Recently, the Gorge Spirit has just not felt like it. As his two friends, the nature spirits Flora and Einstein, heard this, they were dismayed.


Gorge Spirit

“I am the Gorge Spirit! I am made of the water that forms the rocks and shapes the valleys. Hard as ice, foaming like spray, I make sure that everything changes and yet stays the same as it always was.”



“I am made of stone from head to toe. Granite, phyllite and limestone. Even my heart is made of stone, but I love this gorge with a passion.”



“I am a creature that blooms and flourishes. I will wink at you from every tree and from every flower. I am so happy that you are here!”

Help us to convince the Gorge Spirit that he should stay with us because there is nowhere more beautiful than the Spirit Gorge.

Leutasch Spirit Gorge in the twilight

The atmosphere in the Geisterklamm gorge is particularly mystical in the twilight: if you enter the gorge in the early morning or at dusk, you will encounter ghostly patches of mist, dark grottos, cool ghostly winds and in some places even a quiet whispering in the rock. The large and small gorge circuits and the Mittenwald connecting circuit offer very different routes to experience the mysterious Geisterklamm gorge.
