Mühlbach – a rushing mountain stream

Due to its natural course, the Mühlbach stream was declared a natural monument in 2006. The stream carries scree from the Gesäuse mountains. In addition to a trip to the gravel islands, the Grauerlen floodplain forest and the beech forest are particularly worth a visit: Nature lovers will be enchanted by the blue-flowered liverleaf in spring, and the yellow-flowered sage in summer. While you can see white-throated dippers and white wagtails fly above the water, you may discover the larvae of caddisflies and stoneflies in the streambed – so it’s definitely worth turning over a few stones!

You can hike along the stream by using the trail (644) that takes you from the Erb creek (Erbbach) to Tieflimauer.
