Visitor information


We recommend hiking shoes (partly wet passages on the wooden footbridges) and clothing adjusted for the season. It can be very cool in the gorge. After rainy days and in autumn, take weatherproof and warmer clothing/jacket with you (at some places it can drip very heavily from the rocks onto the footbridges).

Physical exertion & time required:

Surefootedness is required for a hike through the gorge. We do not advise people who are not sure-footed to visit the Raggaschlucht. The way back through the forest is a bit steep in the last third. Total walking time (circular route) is about 1.5 hours. The canyon can only be walked in one direction (from bottom to top) There are no alternative routes directly on the boardwalks.


In case of bad weather (rain), please check before arrival if Raggaschlucht is open. (Raggaschlucht Cash Desk +43 4785 333 or Tourist Office Flattach +43 4785 615 . During the opening hours, in exceptional cases or due to extreme weather conditions (e.g. thunderstorms, storms), the gorge may be closed at any time for safety reasons. Safety has the highest priority.


Dogs are generally allowed on a leash. Please note, however, that the ascent of more than 200 m of altitude is continuously on wooden footbridges. The wooden footbridges can be wet and slippery. All this can be a great effort for your dog and possibly lead to injuries. In the gorge, sometimes the background noise is very loud for dogs.


Children must be sure-footed and be specially supervised during the hike. We recommend a hike for children from the age of 6. Walking with prams is not possible.


Outside the official opening hours and in winter, Raggaschlucht is closed for safety reasons! In the high season a visit during off-peak hours (11.00 am to 02.00 pm) is recommended.
