During my 2007 trip to Munich to see my family, my cousin and I planned a trip to the Garmisch-Partenkirchen area. I love this region in southern Germany. The scenery is absolutely stunning, and we always find great shops and restaurants. It was unusually hot, so my cousin suggested also hiking through the Partnachklamm, or Partnach Gorge. Excellent idea! I’ll post some pics of the area in the near future, but today I want to show you the gorge and the river. Also, I found a really cool virtual tour of the gorge here. Click on the screen and then move your cursor to see a 360-degree view. You’ll feel like you’re there! OK, now how much of your day have I wasted? 🙂 Seriously, hiking through this gorge was one of the highlights of my trip.
