I just want other travelers to know, the gorge is not open in March. We hiked up to the gorge and there was a fence across the entrance. We talked to the man at the cable car and he said it would be closed until mid April. He said the overhanging icicles are falling now so it is too dangerous.... More

It was several years ago that we hiked Partnachklamm, but it remains a highlight of our travels. The walk can be a little unnerving, but it's not dangerous, just overwhelming. The falls and gorge are spectacular and the walking not too strenuous. It's absolutely beautiful! If you're going to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, this is a must see. Also, take a look at... More

I spent several hours at the Partnachklamm on a January afternoon. The gorge is incredible and I filmed a video of a daring ice climber. There are so many beautiful scenes and photo opportunities. The gorge was beautiful covered in snow and ice, and I can only imagine how wonderful it is during other times of the year. It is... More

A short 15 min walk from the ski stadium you find a spectacular gorge with a well prepared walk partly inside the rocks over the river Partnach. The walk through the gorge takes about 20-30 min depending on how many photo stops you will have.

If you're in Garmisch for a ski or hiking weekend, make time for the Partnachklamm. It's a very well maintained trail through a deep, narrow gorge. It's slippery and there are multiple stairs to climb so I don't recommend it for the infirm, but reasonably fit people can do this hike quite easily.

We went there with a baby. Location is easily reacheable with a car. But the walk till the caves is of 30 minutes. One can not take buggy or pushchair to the caves. They must be parked somewhere before the start. I would suggest to keep the buggies behind the shop which is located at the start of the path.... More

This was a lovely gentle walk through the gorge and if you go through to the end you can turn up a hill and return to where you started via some stunning meadows.

This is beautiful and worth seeing. It is a round trip and we learnt the hard way which route to take. Go UP in the cable car at the entrance, then down the path to the far end of the gorge. We went along the gorge then walked up a very steep track to the top of the cable car!

The area is gorgeous! Bring walking shoes, a poncho, and some euro for snacks and souvenirs. There are many trails to take.

We hiked at night with torches. The firelight provided the frozen ice an additional sheen. This area generates an incredible natural beauty, and it's worth a visit if you're in the area.
