- According to legend, the young shepherd fell into the raging waters of the Lötzbach after the blacksmith's shop sawed the supporting ropes of the suspension bridge. The bridge was rebuilt and provides a wonderful view of the bull's horn and the old forge. The old forge has its roots in earlier days of history - however, only the foundation walls are visible today, as legend has it that the forge fell victim to a great fire. The Zammer Stierhorn embodies just like the Lötzkraftwerk the energy of the Lötzbach. The water jet of the bull horn is not artificially generated by pumps, but shoots up towards the sky by the pure power of water.
- The waterfall is the most impressive place in the gorge. Here, the Lötzbach plunges thirty meters into the depths in an impressive manner. Over the millennia, the water has made its own way into the valley and flows unwaveringly downhill.
- From the lookout platform you have an unusual view of the impressive waterfall.
- The most mysterious place in the gorge. The bull and the nymph forever united above the floods of the Lötzbach. The two stone effigies have guarded the entrance to the back of the gorge for centuries. .
- The water intake for the power plant serves with its canopies, slides and openings to protect the tunnel system from the entry of flood waters.
- On the cave walls are strange mirrors. These mirrors come, according to legend, from a cave below the great silver peak and this legend says that these slabs of rock, by their shimmer, allow people to take a look into their own heart. .
- Here is the so-called porthole of the surge tank. Here the water settles in a small basin before it begins its steep , fast and pressurized journey into the valley.
- The Roman Tower (also Lötzturm) dates from the time of the Appenzell Wars in 1406 and was part of a defense complex, which originally consisted of three towers and a continuous wall. In the Roman tower, visitors are shown the saga film. .
- Through a narrow penstock, the power station built in 1923 is powered by water from the Lötzbach. In earlier times, between the world wars, the two generators supplied the entire community of Zams, including hospital, with electricity.
