“Pretty, but not super...not great for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We checked out the Gorge after seeing beautiful pictures from some of our friends. Apparently the time of year you visit is important; their pics showed beautiful, cascading water. We got a couple of spots where we were dripped on. Our hotel gave us GPS directions to park at the Olympic stadium-- don't do that. You can drive almost all the way up to the Gorge. Walking through the Gorge is an adventure as the paths are very narrow and there are several extremely dark passageways....it's not the greatest for small kids, especially when it's crowded. People just GO and don't really care whether your kids are clinging to the railing or not (that's in no way the fault of the people who run the attraction, just something to be aware of). It's pretty and I'm glad I went once, but I doubt I'll go again.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

We rented bikes from our local report, packed a light picnic and hit the bike trails, the Gorge and followed up with the Rodelbahn. It was a wonderful way to spend the day! There is a restaurant coming out of the Gorge that serves a "Puff- you'll be surprised" is the they describe it! MUST TRY!

“The beauty of nature abound”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Our recent trip to the Partnach Gorge was abasolutely magnificent. Although we had to wait in a line to pay for entrance (a small fee of 3 euro), once inside it was so well worth it. We did the entire hike through and around the gorge which leads through the countryside as well and it was a rough hike in some places but overall, fairly easy for beginners like us. Our 4 year old did the entire hike by himself as well and enjoyed every minute.

I have never seen anything like this beautiful marvel of nature and will definitely be revisiting before our time in Europe is over!

“Leave until later in the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Great experience. My one tip for a summer visit would be to go after about 4pm when it quietens down quite a lot. Some of the passing places are very narrow, so it's better to pass less people, and you get more chance to stop and take photos with no one in the background!!! Summer open til 7pm (think you can get through for free later than that!!)

“Easy Walk - beautiful scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Brilliant walk - easy enough and well worth it for the sheer enormity of the gorge. Easy to find - from Ski jump follow everyone else lol! Little cafe's and bars all the way up so don't worry you can take a rest if needed. Took some amazing photos!
