New perspectives wherever you look: The Partnach Gorge, which was declared a natural monument in 1912, will cast its spell on you with its wild waterfalls, water rapids and tranquil water basins. Once upon a time, visitors trying to walk through the gorge risked their lives, but nowadays there are two safe paths available.
If you are not afraid of heights, the iron bridge with its height of nearly 70 metres offers you fascinating perspectives. The more comfortable track through the gorge runs right next to the water. This is the path that was used by lumberjacks, hunters and rangers in the past. From here, the roaring waters are within reach.
From the parking site at the Olympic Skiing Stadium (Olympia Skistadion) it is a 25 minute walk to the Partnach Gorge. The romantic horse-drawn carriage, which also starts at the parking site, is a more comfortable way to reach your goal. No matter how you get there, sturdy footwear is required – for young and old alike.
Did you know: The Partnach Gorge is worth a visit in the summer and winter? Moreover, it is the starting point for numerous hikes through this area. Popular places for excursions include the Ferchenbachtal Valley, the Reintal Valley up to Mount Zugspitze, and the hiking areas of Mounts Eckbauer, Hausberg and Kreuzeck.
The guided torchlit hikes through the Partnach Gorge are always a great experience, no matter which season. However, in particular, in the wintertime when the light of the burning torches is refracted by the ice curtains, the Gorge is an exceptionally mystical and charming place.
