The Partnachklamm (Partnach Gorge) is about 700m long with 80m high vertical walls. The wild river Partnach rushes down the gorge deepening it day by day, but especially in spring with the huge amounts of melting water from the mountains. The trails are cut into the walls, high above the river, so the gorge is open all year. Only in spring it has to be closed sometimes, because of dangerous melting water floods or necessary repair works. In winter the gorge has a special feature, strange ice formations created by freezing water emerging from small springs in the cliff face. The gorge is very popular, it is visited by some 200,000 people per year.
