This is an incredibly well maintained trail around a deep gorge. Maybe 3 miles round trip from the parking area. A few spots with steps and a few are steep but nothing remotely unsafe. Strongly recommend this excursion.

You can visit the Geisterklamm for free, it's an exceptional natural phenomenon and the walks are very well maintained. I recommend it for a trip with children!

We were looking forward to this after recommendations by friends in Tirol. It was difficult to find but it didn't disappoint. Its 5 Euros to park the car and after that entry is free. you have to pay 3 Euros for the small walk to the waterfall but its well worth it.

The views are stunning especially from the panoramic bridge. There are signs up along the way to explain the history of the place and thins for the kids to do. There is a small hut where you can have food and drinks close to the waterfall

There is a small cafe near the car park for ice cream, coffee and cake. Great day out

the leutaschklamm gorge just outside mittenwald is a lovely easy couple of hours walk despite getting so lost in mittenwald that we almost gave up and went home!
the road to leutasch is more easily accessed from the mittenwald south exit. do not try driving through mittenwald to get to it, the place is a rabbit warren! from the south exit you need to look to your left for the quite well hidden sign on a road that switches right back on itself. having found the road the rest was easy. park up by the large cabin on the left (which doens't take credit card) which is nicely signposted. the carparking isn't free. take some change. about 5 euros from memory.
the path is obvious, and you pootle along here for a bit until you can decide to go left down to the gorge or keep on and walk through the forest first. this is a big loop, with other bits further down the gorge. we stuck to the gorge and forest.
we went down to the gorge. this is a lovely walk, but on metal grid walkway over the gorge. don't look down too much if you're scared of heights. my boy was a bit bothered by this at first, but we distracted him!
the walkway has a lot of mountain spirit, ghosts and kobald info boards which is a bit new-agey but harmless, and has some interesting facts if you can get past the wording.
lots of steps up and down, with an overall down slope, consequently there's a hill to climb back up but it's a fairly easy slope through forest once you cross the bridge at the end of the gorge section. you can go left here into the kobold's kingdom, or stick with the forest mountain spirit thing and go right. we chose right.
couple of hours in total. lovely clear turquoise river (husband says due to limestone) and pretty scenery.
this is not so spectacular as the partnachklamm gorge, but still worth the walk.

Only about 35kms away from downtown Innsbruck, it makes for an easy day trip for the family. The trails take you through beautiful scenery with lots of picture taking opportunities. The Red Trail is about 3kms long, very easy hike with a Panorama-bridge connecting the two sides of the Gorge. Truly amazing views! Entrance to the Gorge/Klamm is free, parking fee is 5 Euros. (Wonderful apple strudel (pie) with warm vanilla sauce is served at the little cafe by the parking lot.) I'd highly recommend it to families with children and hikers of all ages.

If you are near Mittenwald, check out this klamm! We entered from the Austrian side, which is a short 4km drive out of Mittenwald. Parking is €5; entry is free. You walk through the woods for about 15 minutes to access the gorge. Then you walk along a steel gangway bolted to the side of the cliff! The views are amazing!! Not for the faint of heart, but very doable and for families too. It's exciting! There are some stairs but not difficult. We walked to the 'high bridge" and returned the same way to enjoy the views from the other direction. You can continue onward to the Mittenwald side of the gorge or enter that way. This is the third klamm we've visited in as many years, and the most dramatic walk. Do it! You won't regret it. We are a 60s-something couple.

Fabulous gorge, wonderful views, informative interactive displays. We thoroughly enjoyed these few hours of adventure with nature.
My advice is to start at the western end and don't go down to the eastern kiosk or waterfall walk. This will cut out the most strenuous part of the walk. And it is strenuous!!
We were charged 5 Euro for the parking but no charge for walking

Just outside of town is a four mile loop trail through the forest and along the Leutasch gorge. It is a moderate hike with level places and a few steep climbs. On the climbs there are switchbacks and at every turn is an information placard to read and catch your breath. The trail winds across the border of Austria and Gernany, but there are no checkpoints and no need to show your passport. But imagine: You are in the Alps hiking long the border of two countries. Pretty memorable.

At the end of the gorge nearest Mittenwald is a metal, elevated pathway. It is an attraction you have to pay for. Don't. You will get better views and a thrilling walk if you just follow the trail up hilll. When you crest the hill you can hear the water rushing below. Turn a corner and be surprised at the metal stairs leading downhill to a long bridge suspended 150 feet about the gorge.

It's not the hills that will make your legs wobbly but the experience of being suspended over a gorge that will get them shaking. The trail continues around the gorge on an elevated, metal pathway that is literally hung from the sheer face of the gorge wall. Completely safe and secure, but thrilling nonetheless.

A shorter walk to the metal trail is gained by driving to the parking lot at the far end of the gorge. From the parking lot it is only 1000yards or so to the stairs that lead down to the gorge. Less strenuous, but covers the same terrain through the gorge.

Stunning views of the Alps above and the gorge below. Unforgettable and completely free.

Awesome canopy through a narrow gorge in the middle of a forest, no wonder the German town nearby is called Mittenwald. There is a decently large parking in the Austrian side (maybe full in a popular day) that is the best place to start. The canopy is safe and make it easy for every age, don't need to be in good physical shape to enjoy the hike.
One of my favorite places in this part of the Alps, highly recommended.

Great views and a nice walk, also for kids. Easy to access. Recommended to go in the morning as it is getting packed around noon.
