On the outskirts of Pirmasens between the districts of Winzeln, Windsberg and Gersbach lies the wild and romantic rock gorge “Hexenklamm”. As the most beautiful and largest drainage gorge to the watercourse of the Felsalb, the Hexenklamm forms a typical landscape element with beautiful rock washouts and small waterfalls. The gorge can be viewed through a circular path above the gorge and can be explored in the lower area.

Professional tips:

      Season: All year round depending on the water level of the watercourse, even with ice and snow
      Time of day: 03:00 p.m. – 08:00 p.m. depending on the season
      Weather: Clouds with sun spots, fog, sun
      Lenses: 16-35 mm, 35 mm, 24-70 mm, 70-200 mm details
      Filter: Polarizing filter and gray gradient soft GND 16, GND 8 but also for long exposure at the waterfalls ND 8
      Tripod: Yes
      Location: In the gorge, a narrow path turns off the main path after approx. 1.2 km. After about 30 m there is a massive table with two benches from which you can look directly into the rock basin. About 10 m further is the best position to take in the small waterfall and the rock scenario.

Directions and location:

Via Winzeln to Gersbach in the direction of Windsberg, about 500 m after leaving Gersbach on the left is the dog park, where there is a large car park. From here follow the very well-marked path (symbol “witch”) approx. 1.2 km down the valley. After approx. 450 m you cross the gorge, which is still quite flat there, and begin the descent to the pick-up point via stairs and steep sections of the path.
