The Liechtenstein gorge (Liechtensteinklamm) can be visited if you are staying somewhere in the Werfen area (in Bischofshofen, Altenmarkt in Pongau, St. Johann in Pongau).
Visiting from Salzburg is also possible. From Zell am See it is possible by distance, but it does not make a deep sense, since there are many attractions of its own (also a good gorge in Kaprun).
In 2017, there was a landslide in the gorge, after which it was closed for a long time for path repairs. Now the gorge is open again. The photographs, therefore, will partially not coincide – everything is clearly rebuilt there, although the gorge, of course, remained the same.

How to get Liechtenstein gorge
There are several parking lots near the gorge. From those that come across the first, it is far to go to the entrance to the gorge. In the afternoon, it makes sense to drive to the very end, there is a U-turn. Morning visitors are just starting to leave and space is being vacated, while distant parking lots, where people drove up later, still look eerily crowded.
By public transport.
Get by train (or by bus, if from the nearest cities) to St. Johann im Pongau,
then take the free Citybus to the Ortsteil Plankenau,
from there from the final stop about 45 minutes on foot.
The bus schedule can be downloaded from the gorge website.
The gorge is not suitable for wheelchairs / strollers – there are many steps and narrow spaces.
The Liechtenstein gorge is very popular, there are many people. Security is well organized: everything is fenced, children cannot fall out anywhere. The quality of the path was also proved by the landslide – no one was hurt, although people had to be taken out by helicopter.
The first narrowing has passed, the second begins.
We come to the end point – a waterfall.
We go back. The gorge is exposed to the sun, small rainbows appear here and there.
