Rosengartenschlucht gorge
Blue Grotto

Located only a few minutes from the town center, there is a beautiful biotope offering many recreational highlights, the Rosengartenschlucht.

Home to one of the Tyrol’s most precious biotopes, the Rosengarten gorge is situated just a short walk away from the centre of Imst. The Schinderbach winds its way for 1.5 km from the ‘blue grotto’ through the bedrock of Imst’s low mountain terraces to St. John’s church. In doing so, it passes down through 200 m of rock. For geologists, it also reflects millions of years of the earth’s history, but having said that, you don’t have to be a geological expert to marvel at the beauty of the gorge with its abundance of flowers, wildlife and stones. Your most intensive experience will doubtless be the wildly romantic narrow ravine and its wonderful natural phenomena on a guided tour of the geology and plant life at this spot.

Arriving in Hoch-Imst you have the possibility to descend to Imst via the Wetterkreuz or continue your hike in Hoch-Imst taking the Imst cable cars or the Alpine Coaster.
