This is an amazing little gorge and a fun hike. It's not terribly long but it is a fantastic sight. There are a couple of little gift shops and snack/beer stands on the way up that have some cool authentic gifts (some run of the mill junk too).

We tried to visit the gorge on a Saturday afternoon in August but could not find a parking spot anywhere, so we gave up and returned early the next day. As with many attractions in the area (Zugspitze, eg.) we found the "trick" to visiting these spots is to go early, as close to opening as possible, to avoid crowds.... More

We visited the gorge on a really wet day in August - this added to the experience! The gorge is really easy to find and to get to. It is a comfortable 25 minute walk from the centre of Garmisch along safe, purpose made pathways that take you towards the base of the world-renowned ski jump arena - If you... More

Started our visit (after viewing the 1936 winter Olympic stadium which is enroute) by taking the old fashioned 2 person cable car from Eckbaurbahn up to the top and then trekked it down to Graseck. When you reach Graseck don't take the small cable car. Take the sign which shows a longer trek to Partnach which is through some trees... More

This is an option for hiking! If one starts at the Olympiastadium in the middle of Garmisch then one has several options. 1. walk the trail next to the water rapids and go a bit further to the riverbanks for lunch (bring your own). 2. walk the trail next to the water rapids and take one of the several trails...

Beautiful gorges and an easy short hike for the entire family. We started at the Ski stadium with its ski jump ramps (very cute to see how the sizes grow from the smallest to the biggesg and highest) and read its history, then continued on foot for about half an hour to the entrance to the gorge. Parking was quite... More

A 15 min walk from ski jump car park, this is one of the main attractions at Garmish. Nothing too strenuous, lots of people, but still beautiful. A few bierstube along the way to eat and drink. Note there is an entrance charge.

You pick up the route to the Partnach gorge just next to the Olympic ski stadium and huge ski jumps. Very interesting and kept everyone motivated and excited about the walk. The gorge is very impressive and also very easy walking but remember a raincoat unless you want to get wet from the spray of the waterfalls. We were there... More

Lovely walk but very touristy. Try Hollental for a wilder and less busy walk. Although I did enjoy this next time I would earlier.

Just go do it! We loved it with our 16 year old. Walkers young and old but little kids have to hang on to an adult. The hike through the gorge is on a carved out walkway, through several rock tunnels, with the glacial water raging through just feet below you. Wear a raincoat and/or a hat. Protect your camera...
