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

We decided to head to the gorge after the Zugspits. It was raining but the locals said to go anyway. It was super cool. We then walked 20-25 min to the cable car. The walk was straight up and not for the un-fit person. Many step but worth it.

Touring the Partnach gorge is a great family adventure. Works best if you take that tiny cable car to Graseck and make the gorge trip from the upper end.

You do not expect to find a place like this in the peaceful countryside and mountains near Garmisch Partenkirchen. Go there in a clear day, because while you walk in the narrowest and darkest part of the long trail in the gorge and experience the fury of the water and the danger of the mountain you need to know that...

Get a real rush walking the path right next to the raging waters. Wear a jacket. Go early to avoid the crowds. Fun, and definitely not something you can do every day.

This is such a gorgeous hike. You just park at the Olympic Stadium and walk along the back road away from the city and into the woods. We have also done a torch lit tour through the gorge. It was awesome. Plus, once you get through the gorge there are so many hiking trails to choose from. The river is... More
