Very seldom in nature does water (the headwaters of the Rhine) cut such a steep-sided gorge over many thousands of years. The Romans found it to be a formidable obstacle in this important trading route. The name Viamala means "bad road". They built wooden bridges...More

What an impressive place! Over 300 steps down and then back up to see what the power of water can do. Totally worth a visit and very reasonably priced.

Correctly! Use of the hiking trails is free of charge, for the stair descent you pay entrance. The visit of the stairway in the center of the gorge takes 30-40 min. For the way to the bridge Traversinersteg (direction... More
