    The waters of the Breitach rushing through a narrow gorge from some hundred meters high, partly overhanging rock walls, falls over rock ledges further into the depth and sprayed thereby fine water drops, which create a mystical mood. An unforgettable natural spectacle.

    The Breitachklamm is the deepest canyon in Europe, which can be hiked to a length of 1.5 km on well-traveled and secured paths. On hot summer days it is refreshingly cool, in winter the gorge is one of the only open ones at all.

  • In 1995, a rockfall dammed the waters of the Breitach up to 30 meters and after the snow melted the following year, the dam collapsed with catastrophic consequences.

  • A truly indescribable event to go on a tour there. So that this is not clouded, you should still inquire in advance whether the gorge is also open - because in the spring and in the fall is always closed some time, because of thawing and the care / cutting of the trees.

  • Interesting hike through a canyon that has created the water in many years. In the summer and on hot days a great refreshment. Unfortunately also pretty crowded. Still very impressive.

  • The Breitach has cut 150 meters into the rock within 10,000 years and is considered the deepest canyon in Central Europe. Since 1905, the impressive gorge (through bridges and footbridges) is accessible.
    High public traffic, paths on gravel, concrete, wooden planks and steel mesh.

  • The Breitachklamm is a gorge created by the Breitach in the Allgäu. It is located at the exit of the Kleinwalsertal near Tiefenbach, a district of the municipality of Oberstdorf.

  • The Breitach forces itself near Tiefenbach through a wild gorge, which is accessible to visitors. Again and again it comes to heavy natural influences, be it by snow avalanches or rockfalls, as most recently in 1995, where the whole gorge has been devastated.

  • Probably one of the most beautiful gorges in the tri-border region.

    PS: Gasthof Walserschanze is currently closed.
    Apparently you are looking for a new leaseholder.

  • A very imposing gorge, one of the largest in Europe. The way from cash 1 (with the Walsercard you get per person 0,50 € discount) is great and not very difficult. Children should always be taken by the hand. About Waldhaus you can walk to Riezlern in the center.
