The Rosengarten Gorge in the Tiroler Oberinntal is one of the most beautiful gorges in Austria. Here, the Schinderbach dug through the rocky ridges of the Imster Middle mountain terraces. The gorge leads over 2 kilometers from the Johannesk church in Imst to the blue grotto in Hoch-Imst and is one of the most valuable biotopes of Tyrol. Millions of years of earth's history are reflected in the ravine with an incredible wealth of flowers, animals and stones. The humid and cool climate encourages a unique vegetation. On your way through the wild-romantic canyon, you will pass through the rock-built houses, wooden steps, stone steps as well as the tunnel of the river and thus make your way through the magnificent gorge in a spectacular environment.
The entry into the Rosengartenschlucht is at the Johannes church in the center of Imst. There are parking spaces for those arriving by car (chargeable) . Behind the Johannes church the route starts and leads on about 1.5 kilometers and 250 meters to the other end of the gorge. There is the Blue Grotto, a grotto formed by mining, with two waterfalls, in which Roman silver was already sought after in the Roman period. In Hoch-Imst, the route passes the Inn Sonneck, over the Neureitwiesen and over some serpentines to the view head Wetterkreuz. Then the path leads down to the edge of the Rosengarten gorge and down into the valley back to the Johannes church.
