Malta valley

also called the Valley of Tumbling Waters with its rivers, streams and thundering waterfalls, stretches from the "ARTIST TOWN of Gmünd" via the mountaineering village of Malta all the way up the Malta high alpine road to the Kölnbrein-dam.  With the mountaineering village of Mallnitz, the municipality of Malta shares the two highest mountains of the Ankogel group, the eponymous Ankogel and the Hochalmspitze!

Mountaineering village Malta

The littel village malta lies like an island in the green meadows at the foot of the Malta mountain. Sturdy stone houses gather around the church of Mariahilf. From the village, the view sweeps up to the Tandelspitze, which dominates the valley as a mighty cornerstone of the Reißeck group.
