    A small river flows quietly towards the valley, unimpressed by the high cliffs that tower above it. But in spring, when the snow melts, or when it rains on the surrounding Estergebirge for a long time, the Eschenleihe transforms into a raging river, which makes its way bellowing.

    The paths around the gorge are well secured and can be walked on with children. Nevertheless, caution should be exercised when the water level is high.

    The Eschenlainetal belongs to the Estergebirge, often called Krottenkopfgebirge, and is part of the northern Limestone Alps. In Eschenlohe the Eschenlahe crashes through a deep gorge of dolomite rock. A narrow jetty leads over the abyss, where the following is written: "This gorge was built after the councilor dr. Wilhelm Asam (1862-1944) named "Asamklamm". Before that she was called "Black Brüll Klamm". Dr. Asam was a general practitioner in Murnau and also looked after his patients in Eschenlohe. The market Murnau awarded him in 1911 the honorary citizenship. The jetty over the Eschenlaine was built in 1936 by pioneers. "

    Through the deep ravine of the Asamklamm the Eschenlaine has made its way. Passing by rugged, steep rock walls, the gentle little river winds its way, which at times can suddenly turn into a wild torrent that thunders through the riverbed. In the spring, when the snow melts or when it rains for a long time, a muffled roar echoes through the gorge, the ashlaine becomes a torrential river. Again and again, it has contributed to dramatic disasters. The worst was the Eschenloher floods of 1999 and 2005.

    For us, the gorge was more than fascinating ... but in a different way - because the Eschenlaine did not carry any water at all - so we could partly walk directly through the riverbed and get fantastic insights and insights!

    You can park at the town hall very well.

    The bridge over the Asamklamm alone is worth a visit, but the way there and some beautiful views round it off.
    Great hike 👍

    When I came in june, you can find many beautiful wild flowers along the path. The path is really nice along with the old river. It seems to have a lot of activities around this area in the path but unfortunately in June 2020 was no water there at all
