Must see!

Very nice place to visit! We really enjoyed it! We went through and back. It might be nice to plan a trip that includes the bridge as well. We leave that one for next time.

My family of four (mom/dad, 2 kids - 11/13 yrs old) really enjoyed this hike along the Partnach Gorge in Feb 2015. I imagine other seasons are nice as well, but winter time is absolutely extraordinary with all the HUGE icicles hanging from the canyon walls. A fairly easy hike for most (pretty flat and smooth), but can be a... More

We did a nighttime torch lit tour of Partnach Gorge with our kiddos. Our youngest is 8, so we didn't have to worry about carrying kids or frisky toddlers getting away from us. The kids (and the adults) thoroughly enjoyed the nightscape by firelight. There were still a few ice formations along the gorge, even though it was unseasonably warm.... More

The walk from the olympic stadium to the gorge is quite for for little children. They usually have horse carriages but not on our day. I would recommend using that service. The views were amazing and our 7 year old was just sure that Elsa from Frozen had done all this. It was about a 30 minute walk in the... More

From the reviews I expected a little more if i'm honest but would still recommend it. Stroll up from the Olympic stadium is easy and traffic free (20 mins), there are coffee and beer stops on the way but all were closed in FEB - I thought this was a winter resort!!?? Anyway, for 3 euros each its a walk... More

I went with a group of friends and family for a night tour with Edelweiss Lodge. The caves were beautiful by torch light but I imagine you can see much more of the gorge during the day. I found the torch light to be a little blinding. The trail is extremely slippery and may make parents with young children a... More

An interesting walk- nature and historical. Walking the gorge and thinking of the lumber men that guided the trees through it is an experience! It must have been an incredibly dangerous job as they didn't have the prepared walkways we stand on now. Aside from that, the natural experience of the sheer walls and rushing water is something to behold!... More

We took a hike to the Partnach Gorge the other day with our kids ages 6 and 10. It's quite a long walk from the parking lot by the Olympic stadium to the gorge but no other recourse unless you take the carriage ride. I found the walk to the gorge entrance to be longer than the actual hike through... More

We set off about 7.30am and the morning was beautiful. We walked the two kms. to the entry as the horse draw carriages don't start till about 9am. They are quite expensive anyway. The Gorge is absolutely spectacular and should not be missed. The raging water makes it hard to hear anything else and the filtered light from way above... More

The gorge is stunning in winter as the falls are frozen solid with enormous icicles. The path can be a little slippery, and waking boots or sturdy shoes are advisable. However, if you wish to walk further along the valley away from the gorge, then you will need walking boots.
