Mountains of Mystery
Eisenwurzen - Geheimnisvolles Land
Forming part of the northern limestone Alps, the «Eisenwurzen» nature park boasts a varied, rich landscape dominated by dramatic mountain chains and mighty, steep-faced individual mountains with high-rising cliffs. The white-water rivers and creeks which have eroded the rock of the precipitous mountainsides and ravines are a constant temptation to daring young people, offering fascinating training opportunities to kayakers and canoers of all skill levels. The Eisenwurzen and neighboring regions stand for harmony between ancient culture and craftsmanship on the one hand, and bizarre, overwhelming natural landscapes on the other. The Eisenwurzen region reflects a close union of Mother Nature, historical tradition, exploratory urge and love of adventure.
