  • I’ve seen many other gorges before but this one impressed me the most due to its length, height and views. If you get to Garmisch-Partenkirchen this place is a must see.  more »
  • The Partnachklamm is well worth a visit. I find only the now 6 Euro admission to go through unashamed. Alternatively, you can go up a path directly in front of the cashier's house on the left and walk along above the gorge. Here you also get a very nice view into the gorge and don't get quite as wet.
