Walking to the Partnach Gorge from Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the month of May enabled glorious views of the surrounding alpine meadows. It had been raining hard for at least two days so the water was thundering through the Gorge as well as down its steep vertical sides. Well worth a visit and extremely good value too!

I recommend waterproof jackets, for most of the year the water is dripping from the rocks. We've done the round-about itinerary, visiting the gorges first and then a bit of hiking, a beer-break at the bier-garten up the hill, then downhill (very steep slopes, but with asphalt, so nothing dangerous)

This trilling and beautiful nature walk is a must for everyone. We did not climb up to the bridge but we will next time. Bring an umbrella or a good rain coat you will get wet. look for the Mother Marie on the opposite wall about half way through. The views are even better on the way back.

It's a comfortable walk, unique views, fun for kids. There are so many hiking trails around that offer options for all skill levels, weather conditions, and times of the year. We visited the Olympic park, walked through the gorge, climbed the hill to the small cable car, rode it back down and walked back to our car. For 2x 10... More

We have been to the gorge a few times in the Summer and Winter. It is such a different experience in the winter with the ice and snow. It is a great spot to see everything and the restaurant at the top of the hill is very inexpensive and the food was delicious.

Missed the Gorge on my first visit to Garmisch, so was thrilled to be in the area again. I was hesitant about driving down with the change of rain forecasted, but read on another review that it was a great rainy-day activity since you get a little wet anyway. Great advice! The walk from the parking lot to the Gorge... More

Highly recommend this trip. A better way would be to take the cable car up then walk down into the gorge, so the walk would be mostly downhill with little effort. We went the other way, it was nice, but a bit of a workout.

Drive and park at the Olympic Stadium (home of the Winter Olympic Games in 1934). Be sure you pay for three hours plus so you can enjoy a beer or two at the nice little inns on the way back from the walking the Gorge - believe me you'll need them!!! Follow the fast flowing stream along a wide pathway... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the hike and views. It was a rainy day to begin with, so we came armed with raincoat and umbrellas -- which were needed for the gorge hike. It was a 20min walk from the parking to the gorge entrance and about another 30min to walk the gorge beginning to end and back again. We hiked with... More
