Vorderkaserklamm (declared a natural monument in
1977) between St. Martin and Weißbach was first made
accessible to visitors in 1882. About 12,000 to 14,000 years
ago, when the glacial ice from the last Ice Age had melted,
the Ödenbach began to cut its way into the hard rock (an
average of 6 mm each year).
Today, the gorge is already 400
meters long, 80 meters deep and up to 6 meters wide at the top
and a narrow 80 cm at the bottom. A total of 51 footbridges
and 35 walkways with 373 steps were built into the gorge.
Before reaching the entrance to
the gorge (2.5 km ride from the federal road Bundesstraße
311), visitors can walk trough the nature recreation area with
ponds for swimming and barbecue areas in the „Schiedergraben“.
