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.

Count 20 minutes to get to the gorges, another 30 minutes to do it. At the end, be ready to hike a steep road to get to the top (the way to come back), it will allow you to take a little bridge above.... more

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.
Awesome adventure the lower trail was easy for any age. The upper trail to the restaurant was simple but demanding not recommended for elderly or toddlers unless you want to carry them. So with proper carrying gear and proper shoes (trail can be slick and muddy) its a good exercising walk.
