It is more beautiful than the photos and one of the highlights of our trip. Wear tennis shoes or hiking shoes and be prepared to get a little wet :)

Starting from the Winter Olympic Stadium, it is slightly more than 1 mile to the entrance of the gorge and in parts a moderately steep walk. There are horse-drawn carriages for people who would like to enjoy this luxury. The gorge is narrow but the path is well paved with safety rails for the whole distance. This path must be... More

The Partnach Gorge is a unique natural phenomena that is a must see. The path is quite narrow and for good part of it water drops fall from the top but the view of the river and the canyon are great. The walk to entrance of the canyon is abit long and if you wish, you can ride a carriage... More

Not to be missed attraction when you are in Bavarian Alps. The gorge is specatular in both winters and summer. One can see the power of water here. Breathtaking view. You need a sturdy footwear to hike the gorge. A raincoat and a small torch light is required for you to enjoy the hike.

It was quite a cold day but WOW it was stunning. Not too long of a walk, quit narrow paths but you feel one with such beautiful nature!

Even on a rainy morning, this is an impressive outing. We took a local bus to the Olympic Stadium and ski jump used in the 1936 Olympics. From there it is a 30 minute stroll up the mountain to the entrance to the gorge. Entry is 3.5 euro for adults and you are on your way. Best to have a... More

We visited the gorge after 2 rainy days after reading about it on the Garmisch-P tourism website. We had a 25 minute walk from our distant parking spot to the spot where you pay a small fee to enter the tunnels of the gorge. The waterfalls, turning & swirling water erupting through the gorge and dripping walls were amazing to... More

AWESOME!! Very beautiful and amazing! I have never experienced anything like it before. Don't miss it! Just be prepared for a long walk, wear comfortable shoes and a jacket. The temperature is 20 degrees cooler, which was great on a hot day. Take your time and enjoy!! We did.

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
