GORGE-OUS: A waterfall flowing into
You weave through pitch-black tunnels and emerge into daylight to gaze up at waterfalls feeding into the gorge from 80m above.
It’s best to go on a sunny day to see the sunbeams play off the rocks and falling water.
The power of the water is amazing – it flows down from melted glacial snow ice and snow produced by a slow-dying ice-age glacier, the Schneeferner, further up in the Alps.
ONWARDS AND UPWARDS: The
Konigshaus am Schachen
makes a nice extension to a trip to the gorge.
GO TOPO: Part of a
topographical map of
the gorge. Find links to

Every once in a while a book comes along that changes your life.
Until it does, please consider buying Destination Munich and Bavaria, the grooviest, most informative guide on the market :-)
It'll give you full-colour maps, practical info and hundreds of tips on how to get the most out of your visit.
It's 227 pages of up-to-the-minute travel intelligence and it can be yours as an eBook for less than the price of an Oktoberfest beer. (read on)
