Circular hike via Wamberg, Graseck and the Partnachklamm
This half day tour takes you across lush green meadows and through shadowy forests to Wamberg. With its church of St. Anna is the highest-altitude village in Germany with a church and the whole village is under historical preservation order.
Wamberg, the highest-altitude village with its own church in Germany, is just as unspoilt as the surrounding nature. The old farmhouses with their shingle roofs, wooden gables and balconies look cozy and make you feel like in times long gone. Surrounded by meadows and forests, time seems to pass more slowly here. From Wamberg you walk across romantic mountain pastures of the Wamberger Sattel downhill towards Elmau and then to Hintergraseck and Vordergraseck. With the Partnachklamm (Partnach Gorge), a geological highlight waits for your visit. In 1912, the gorge was declared a natural monument, fascinating everyone with its wild roaring waterfalls, cataracts and pools. The Partnach mountain torrent has dug its bed up to 80 m deep into the rocks over a distance of ca. 800 m, creating one of the most beautiful gorges in the Alps. The track leads through the gorge right next to the water. In former times, only sure-footed lumberjacks, hunters and rangers used the path, but when more and more tourists came to the region at the beginning of the 20th century, the passage was expanded and made safe for everyone. At the end of the trail you can take a look at the new ski jump, an architectural masterpiece. Here, the New Year’s Ski Jumping World Cup event of the Four Hills Tournament takes place every year. In summer, you can take a plunge and relax in the natural swimming pool of the Kainzenbad if the weather is warm.
