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.

  • The party clam is certainly a must-attend event when visiting Garmisch. The natural spectacle is very worth seeing, you also get a bit wet, so a rain jacket can make sense. Admission 5 euros per person or 4 euros with guest card. The ticket is checked (-) in "both directions." Bicycles or pushchairs must not be taken into the gorge (which also makes sense ... Even during the week is relatively busy and it is partly tight) After that you can either go back through the gorge or ascend to the Graseck mountain station in about 20min (steep path, but fortified with kicks and partial steps). From there you can take the Graseck train, continue the tour or also walk back to the ski jump (beware-this path is currently closed due to construction work!)

  • To get to the party clam, you have to park at the Olympic Center and walk. (With us 32 ° there it was exhausting) Otherwise you can also let yourself go with a horse-drawn carriage. The gorge itself is a little slippery, but also walkable for the elderly. It's great around noon, when sunlight falls into the gorge. Length about 1 km. Admission € 5,--

  • Entry to the party clam costs €5am for adults and youngsters €3am. With a guest card, you get a £1 discount per person. With us, the gorge was well visited and we had to queue for about 20 minutes until we got in. Also inside the gorge was totally overcrowded and you could only stop badly to take pictures. In addition, many of the visitors also come back through the gorge do that it tw. Very tight. All in all, a nice little gorge for you can see. Conclusion: Definitely recommended, but brings some time
