Hiking tour to the natural monument Birnbachloch and the Birnbachlochgletscher, one of the lowest glaciers in Central Europe. This tour is popular for its marvellous and nearly untouched nature on the foot of the Leogang Mountains.
The hiking tour starts in the Ullachtal valley in Leogang and guides you through forest, then along the hiking path through meadows and finally through slightly more rocky terrain up to the Birnbachloch (1219 m). The Birnbachloch is a karst well with a 20 m wide "entrance hall", where the Birnbach river has its spring. Close to the Birnbachloch, the Birnbachgletscher is located, one of the lowest glaciers in Central Europe. The glacier was used in the 19th century to fill up the ice cellars of Munichs beer breweries. The ice was transported to the valley via several hundred meter long wooden slides.
