Hiking through the gorge was other worldly. The cliffs rose steeply on either side as we went up into the gorge and occasionally behind waterfalls. Even though it was quite dark in a few places, we never felt uncomfortable. This is a good choice for a cloudy day when hiking in the mountains would be disappointing.

The famous Patnachklamm is definitely worth visiting. Although the official times for a walk-through are much higher: you will be through in 35 minutes... It gets rather busy there and unfortunately there is access from both sides of the Klamm. So, half of the time you are trying to make space for the oncoming traffic... Be prepared.

Beautiful; hidden; quiet; easy to get to; must see and walk through. Went up from town center by bus in a few minutes.

Before I get to the actual gorge I wanted to explain about the surrounding area. Most visitors park at the Olympic Stadium which costs €2.50 for a day ticket or you can do 50 cent increments for each half hour. However, you cannot get to the gorge and back in two hours so the day ticket is the best option.... More

This was definitely a highlight of our time in the area. We parked at the Olympic ski stadium and found the signs to the trail easily (it's written on the stadium itself!) We reached the gorge at about 9:30am and there were only two other guys on the trail which meant lots of chances to stop and take photos anywhere... More

This is a fun walk through a gorge, but it is so crowded that you cannot stop and take pictures without inciting wrath. It was a cheap, fun experience, but not one easily recorded.

This is a must do and see hike through an incredible gorge.After going through the gorge we kept hiking and ended up way up on the mountain. Wonderful even though it was raining. Make sure to bring a baseball cap and a good rain jacket!

This is definitely a must do in Gamisch and even better on a rainy day when there's more water and no view on the Zugspitze.

The hike took us around the gorge, which included about half an hour of going uphill and offered amazing views. Then the route continued down straight through the gorge, which was a bit chilly but the sight was definitely worth it.
