Bavaria Travel Tips- Partnachklamm (Partnach Gorge)
The Partnachklamm (or Partnach Gorge in English) is located in the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen about an hours drive outside of Munich. It is a beautiful area that is well worth the visit if you are in Bavaria and have already worn yourself out on castles. ;) The Partnach River runs through this gorge and is about 2,300 feet long with limestone walls that reach about 260 feet high. Visitors can walk along a cut out tunnel that runs along side the river and take in all the amazing scenery.
The Partnachklamm is open year round (with the exception of a short time during spring when the ice is melting), and is apparently quite beautiful in the winter. I have only been able to visit during the summer months, but I think I will be making another trip soon. It is always quite chilly when walking through the tunnel, so even if it is hot out, be sure and bring a jacket. If your ambitious you can hike a few trails in the area, and there is also a great little restaurant/hotel at the top to have lunch with an amazing view. (Pictured below)
