Barbian/Barbiano Waterfalls

A spectacle of nature

Another attraction worth visiting was not created by builders but by nature: the Barbian waterfalls. The Ganderbach (stream), which is near Kollmann and flows into the Eisack river, has a length of almost 6 kilometres. At the point of 1,510 metres above sea level, the stream falls over several rock cliffs down into the valley.

The lower part of the waterfall is 85 metres at its highest. From here, you can reach the upper part of the waterfall via a marked, wild and romantic path.

Guided "Kneipp" hike
The guided hike to "Kneipp" takes place every thursday from the end of June until the end of September.
Starting point is the Information Office of Barbian/Barbiano at 10.00 a.m. Return at aprox. 1.00 pm. It is an easy hike.

First we walk towards the lower waterfall. On the way we will get to a Kneipp basin, which anybody can enter barefoot. Afterwards we continue to the lower waterfall where our hiking guide will tell us some interesting things about water and Kneipp. After that we will make some breathing exercises. We will return to the Kneipp basin again to make some final exercises an then go back to Barbian.
