We walked here from the main train station since we did not have a car. The walk was scenic through the rural part of town on the other side of the train tracks with a view of the ski jump. We could see the glacial waters on our hike. To get to the gorge, you can take the easy 20... More

It's beautiful here! Don't go if you're in a rush because they have narrow paths and it can get cramped. If you have lots of time and are feeling adventurous, take the trail that goes up and around the gorge and have lunch at the hut!

Find your way to the Olympic Stadium and take a lovely 20 min stroll to the entrance on the Gorge and then follow the path through some amazing tunnels through the rock face and along the gorge.So close you can feel the cool water sprinkling on your face, very refreshing. At the end of the pathway it opens up to... More

Great place to spend the afternoon. It's a bit of a hike down to the actual gorge, but well worth the trip. And the length of the walk through the gorge itself was very surprising ... much, much longer than expected. We took so many pictures of this beautiful area that it's hard to pick which one is the best.... More

After parking up at the Olympic ski jump car park ( which can seemingly be full even at what one might expect to be quiet times ) you walk up to the start of the gorge - the gorge itself is much more impressive than one might perhaps expect from the advertising. At places it is very narrow and the... More

We were not sure what to do on a very rainy autumn day in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The tourist information website recommended walking the gorge, so we thought we would give it a try. It was a perfect choice, as the gorge is both mostly protected from the rain and even more dramatic with the rainwater pouring down the sides of the... More

This was a revisit for us, but unfortunately we took a wrong turn and gave ourselves an extra workout. Taking the Eckbauer bahn up to the top and hiking down to and through the Gorge is a great way to spend an afternoon at the foot of the Alps.

very interesting, don't forget to take some waterproofs and maybe a torch might be helpful as some of the tunnel areas are dark at times

The gorge was a wonderful experience. If you are in Garmisch-Partenkirchen it is a must activity! It is a short hike from the Olympic ski jump (20 minutes).

This was really awesome and have never seen anything like it elsewhere. You are right down in the bottom of a very fast flowing and narrow gorge. If you are nervous about things like the dark, small spaces, cliffs, slippery trail. Don't go here. Otherwise you will love it and there are plenty of walking trails after it that are... More
