The Wutachschlucht is a narrow valley, which is known as the lowest Wutachflühen. The Wutachschlucht is part of the Southern Black Forest. She cuts through the Black Forest to the slope of the Swabian Alb. The 60-170 meter deep gorges are remarkable in many ways. Geologically it is a young and very dynamic area with some spectacular geomorphological forms. The area also has a wide variety of habitats and a wealth of animal and plant species. The canyons are real touristic highlights.

The Wutach Gorge is a narrow, steep-sided valley in southern Germany through in the upper reaches of the River Wutach with three gorge-like sections, the lowest of which is also called the Wutachflühen. The gorge cuts through the southern part of the Baar region from the eastern side of the High Black Forest heading eastwards to the Trauf the steep, northwestern flank of the Swabian Jura, which transitions to the Randen mountains here.
The 60- to 170-metre-deep gorges stretch for over 33 river kilometres and are notable for many reasons. Their geologically young, prototypical and actively continuing development results in a great variety of geotopes and biotopes that support a correspondingly rich range of flora and fauna. The gorges are very popular with tourists and played an important role in the establishment of conservation consciousness in southwestern Germany. The Wutach Gorge is part of the Southern Black Forest Nature Park.
