Visit a Garmisch natural wonder that is a must see for any Garmisch visit. 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. First stop on the tour is at the 1936 Olympic Ski Jump Stadium. From there it will be a twenty minute walk to the entrance of the Partnach Gorge. We also have a gorge bike and hike tour where we ride from the Resort to the gorge and back.
Winter Partnach Gorge
The Gorge is an exceptionally mystical and charming place. Any trip to Garmisch should include a trip to this must-see natural wonder. You will be given historic information at the Olympic Ski Jump Stadium and at the gorge itself. Then walk along the beautifully carved stone with water flowing through the ice caverns. Afterward, indulge in a tasty dessert and/or beverage in a classic G√§sthaus. It is also possible to experience the gorge at night with a torch! See next page for details.
Winter Partnach Gorge Torchlit Night Tour
Just as magnificent as in the daytime is the Partnach Gorge when seen illuminated by fire at night. You will head out from the hotel just around dusk and arrive at the Olympic Ski Jump Stadium to receive historic information and facts about the gorge. Then, light up your torch as you head through the stunning gorge of ice stalactites and stalagmites shining with the light from the flame. This is truly a unique way to see such a beautiful rock formation in the winter. Afterward, indulge in a tasty dessert and/or beverage in the classic Partnach G√§sthaus. Tour dates begin when the ice has formed in the gorge.
* The partnach tour is not stroller friendly any time of year and not available for children under 8 years old.
