Explore the deep caverns and rushing waters of one of Germany's most notable natural wonders at Partnachklamm. The historic gorge--more than 80 m (262 feet) tall--features a dramatic combination of waterfalls, rapids, and deep-water basins. You can journey through the 702 m (2303 ft) of dark caverns and rushing water to enjoy the unspoiled natural beauty of the gorge. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride from the parking lot to the entrance as a fun alternative to walking. Be sure to wear a rain jacket and sturdy shoes when exploring the gorge.

A classic tour of the beautiful Alpine area! Absolutely outstanding experience! You will have to walk a ways, since the parking lot is situated down in the town, but you will walk along the river and not mind one bit. There is a restaurant and gift shop where you can get some sustenance either on your way up or your way down. For the most part, this is a great experience for all ages, but if your child is very young, keep a close eye on them.
Stunning experience. Unbelievably beautiful and perfect for nature lovers! Visited in the summer and this whole place looked photoshopped - Just breathtaking. Can't wait to go back during the summer as well as the other seasons and hike there! Pack a little bag with sandwiches and have a break by the stream.
