Alpbachtal Seenland in the Tirol region of Austria is all about getting outdoors, soaking up dramatic scenery and breathing in the fresh Alpine air.
The triftsteig (trail) follows the Brandenberger Ache (river) which cuts its way through stunning surroundings down the Brandenberger valley to Kramsach.
The river has carved its way through the landscape creating a stunningly beautiful scenic canyon.
The pale limestone rocks beneath the swirling waters give the river a milky aquamarine appearance. In places where the water’s deeper, it shimmers a deep emerald green.
The river twists its way through dramatic rock formations and steep-sided ravines.
We followed its path crossing bridges, traversing boardwalks and passing a bridal veil waterfall on the way.
Historically, the river was integral to the local timber industry. Log drivers would send logs and tree trunks down the wild waters of the Ache River.
