In the following lines we will introduce you our insider tips and favorite places in the area of hikes around the Hotel Brückenwirt.
Let yourself be fascinated by the legendary gorge in St. Johann im Pongau. The approximately 4,000-meter-long gorge attracts visitors from all over the world every year. The Liechtensteinklamm is in some places up to 300 meters deep and partly only a few meters wide. The gorge is viewed over wooden bridges and at the end is a romantic waterfall.
To such a mystical place many stories and legends were told. Thus the legend of the St. Johanner Liechsteinklamm tells us that a long time ago a farmer had negotiated ineptly with the devil. The peasant from St. Johann wanted to bring the devil to bring the Gasteiner healing springs to St. Johann. As payment, the farmer would give his wife the devil. This had to happen until the next morning. Stunned by the farmer's wife, she dived the cock into the spring water before the next day. Full of anger, the devil realized that he had lost the weather, he broke the springs into the depths of the rocks - so no one could get the water.
The Lichtenstein is open every day from the beginning of May to the end of September.
