Solid steps and bridges in the rock connect this 100 m long formation. Imposing waterfalls and countless water mills are only some of the attractions to be seen on this visit. Another not-to-be missed attraction is Pochtenkessel, a natural geological rock funnel at the point where the Engstlige and the Otterebach river flow together.
An imposing water spectacle is offered by the Choleren gorge. The 100m long rock gorge is accessible via a system of walkways and steps, guaranteeing a safe visit. Important repairs have been carried out. At Choleren gorge you won't only find an impressive waterfall. You will also see numerous watermills and rocks polished by the water flow. An excursion to Choleren gorge can be comfortably combined with a visit to Pochtenkessels - a deep rocky funnel where the Engstligen and Otterebach waters meet.
