    The joy of summer

      Gößnitz waterfall

      A rock face towers hundreds of metres above the “shaded side” of Heiligenblut am Großglockner. It is parted in the middle by a narrow cleft, which looks as if it had been hacked into the rock by a giant with an enormous axe. From this cleft plummets the Gößnitzbach stream, thundering into the valley as a mighty waterfall more than 70 metres high!
