  • Thematical trail along the Bolgenach in Hittisau as far as the Engenlochschlucht with its overhanging cliff formations.

    This path takes you to the Kommabrücke which, at about 300 years old, is the oldest covered wooden bridge in the state. You ramble along the Bolgenach as far as the Engenlochschlucht with its overhanging cliff formations. Via the Ließenbachbrücke, you reach the water-operated sawmill Bartenstein in Reute.

    Bei Regenwetter ist die Wanderung besonders reizvoll, kann jedoch auch rutschige Stellen enthalten!

    At the end of the Ice Age, a lake emerged at the foot of the Hochhäderich. The Bolgenach carved its path out of the cliffs which formed the “dam wall” of the lake. And so the Komma gorge arose. For almost 300 years, the Komma bridge has been crossing the river and the gorge at a height of 15 m: this bridge is the oldest covered bridge in the province. Along the Bolgenach, the water ramble takes you across a suspension bridge, past the wild yet romantic Engenloch gorge.
