Pesenbachtal Nature reserve

Feldkirchen an der Donau, Oberösterreich , Österreich

As most streams of the Mühlviertel, the Persenbach confluences ravine-like with the Danube. It can be seen as the heart of the nature protection area Pesenbachtal.

on Kneipp's traces and discovering the legends of the romantic Persenbach valley
Guided tours can be booked here:

In the Persenbachtal many characteristics can be discovered such as the so-called “blaue Gasse” (blue alleway). This natural monument is an approximately one metre broad channel with a striking blue-black colouring. Water from a slightly radioactive spring, the Bruno-spring, is used for Kneipp-facilities. On the northern slopes of the valley the spruce is predominant. It was planted and is thereby a not-native tree and doesn’t fit to the valley. Drought-loving trees such as hornbeam and Scotch pine feel comfortable on the southern slopes. With a bit of luck you will meet an Aesculapian snake or a green lizard, which you can find on the high edge of the steeply incised valley on southern rocky slopes. When it is rainy, it is possible to meet a fire salamander that stands out by its yellow-orange warning colour.
