Hiking through Rosengarten GorgeĀ (german: Rosengartenschlucht) is a pure pleasure: raging water with a turquoise shimmer, steep cliffs, narrow paths and the gentle Rhododendron ferrugineum - alpenrose. So if you are ever in Imst in Tirol, you shouldn't miss this. You can also complete this hike well with the Drischlsteig. Starting this hike in Imst at the Johanneskirche. Along the "Rosengartenweg" we pass former houses carved into the rock walls before the path winds its way through the breathtaking gorge.

Rough rocks and beautiful natural elements

On foot you need about one and a half to two hours through the gorge. Especially if you also want to take some pictures and have a look around the Blue Grotto (here they have already searched for silver galena 2000 years ago). So take your time. I can highly recommend it! The path is easy to walk on: It passes over wooden walkways, bridges and stone steps and through small rock tunnels. And keep your eyes open. At the edge of the path also grows the alpenrose: Rhododendron ferrugineum.
