Xanderklinge - ascent through the waterPhoto: Klaus Winstel, Community
Hike from Krabba-Nescht to Nagold and back via the Xander Blade.
Distance 4.3 km
Nice route through the Xanderklinge (gorge). The way there is quite easy and leads over wide forest and meadow paths. The gorge itself impresses with a great untouched landscape (sometimes there are a few trees in the way) and is technically a bit difficult, but it is suitable for people who are good walkers and older children. We recommend wearing sturdy hiking shoes.
The gorge's path is quite demanding; there are a few steps to climb, and a few times, you have to walk through the water. On one ascent, you can climb the wall with the help of a rope and iron nails. The nails are hard to see, you have to search a little bit, but then the ledge is easy to overcome.
