Wow! The hike through the gorge was far more than I expected. Absolutely stunning. Go between 11 am and 1 pm if you will be taking pictures, the light is so striking.

Taking the public transport to the gorge makes the walk quite long in winter to just reach the ticket center but it is 100% worth it. The gorge is beautiful and does require you to have some good walking shoes/boots in winter. There are patches of ice during the winter so please be aware of this if you plan on... More

I was pleasantly awe-inspired by this gorge, by its narrowness and thundering sound of water. It doesn't appear that you can drive up to the start, so there is an unexpectedly long 30 minute walk on the road to the Gorge ticket booth from the carpark at the old Olympic Skijump Stadium (worth a look inside !) - it may...

Outside our hotel in Garmisch we caught a bus. The bus took us to the train station where we changed buses and caught one to take us to the Olympic park. That was a nice view but it wasn't our goal. We were on our way to Partnach Gorge. Taking a few moments to take in the scene of the... More

This gorge is so pretty in winter. It's a short walk from the Olympic Stadium to the entrance of the gorge and definitely worth it. Make sure to wear sturdy footwear as it can be very slippery. Can talk for hours about this small and stunning gorge, but will let the photos do the talking.

An interesting walk alongside the gushing waters and finally opening up into a full stream of melted fresh snow, is worth the experience

Such an amazing cross between nature and human ingenuity. I saw a show in the US about the people who keep this attraction open by reworking the paths and bridges each spring and I knew I had to visit.

This should be one of the "must see" places to visit in GAP. The gorge is spectacular in both summer and winter. However, even in summer it can get a bit chilly in there with little sun and all the water splashing around, so take a sweater or fleece. In summer a light rain jacket would keep you dry. Don't...

Great tour specially with kids, amazing views. It is relative easy walk, watch your head. Take a flash light, walk back over the mountains and visit one of the huts for a beer.

Made the hike from the Olympic Stadium all the way to the top. Photo opportunities galore and well worth the two plus hours of hiking. We took the cable car down from the top and stopped for a quick cold beer at the bottom.
