Partnachklamm Gorge is dramatic throughout the year - during winter the river at its base often freezes, creating stalactite icicles, and in the summer the rapids, waterfalls and whirlpools are a feisty, whirling sight.

The gorge is carved along an 800 metre stretch of mountain, at some places is as deep as 80 metres into the rock. A trail has been cut into the rock to make it safe to view up close, but the park guides warn that you will probably get wet.

There are numerous hiking and climbing paths in the area and though the gorge has been tamed since it was first proclaimed a natural monument in 1912, there are still some adventurous trips you can take along its route.

In winter Partnachklamm has the additional draw for visitors of being close to the nearby Olympic Ski Stadium.
