We started from Munich at around 9:30AM in the morning. The direct DB train RB5415 dropped us at the Garmisch-Partenkirchen at 10:54.. From there we took the Bus-2 and got down at the Olympia-Skistadion. A 20 mins walk through the scenic Wildenauer Strasse by the side of the river Partnach, will take us to the entrance of the Partnach Gorge... More

Its a good thirty to 40 minute walk to the entrance to the gorge but well worth it. The Gorge is a natural wonder and breathtaking rock formations--takes about 20-30 minutes to walk through it--highly recommended

This is an easy hike/walk that will give you spectacular views of this impressive gorge. It really does look like something from a fairy tale. Go early, though, because it gets crowded. My husband, who hates to hike, refused to do the loop which includes a 30-minute hike after you get through the gorge (there's a pub at the end... More

We took the Esk cable car up and then walked down to avoid moaning from the kids (3 and 5). This turned out to be a great idea! The gorge itself is brilliant and we went on a misty / rainy day so didn't matter about getting wet.

Of the many gorges in the area that you can visit, this is one of the best, and with easy access is suitable for almost everybody.

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
