The spectacular Barbian waterfalls are of course the attraction of this hike. They cascade down a total of 200 metres to the depths. Along the trail however there are also other things to see, for example, the leaning steeple of the church of Barbian.
Those interested in architecture will have a lot of pleasure with the Gasthof (inn) Briol. It is a fine example of Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) in the heart of the Alps. The artist Hubert Lanzinger has created a total work of art, in which it is possible to live and eat, out of a former shelter.
Dreikirchen should also be mentioned. It is an especially interesting architectural ensemble, constructed on the site of an ancient spring sanctuary.
