Guided hike through the Notgasse, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage. The Notgasse, located at the foot of the Stoderzinken, connects Gröbming to alpine pastures at higher elevations. The trail, which is only accessible to pedestrians, was used by hill-farmers, packers and employees of the charcoal works. The impressive gorge, with rock walls as much as 60 meters in height and its historic petroglyphs, envelops the visitor in an aura of the mysterious and mystical.
