Tips

  • Stephanie

    The water of the Wimbach, which flows underground in the rear Wimbachtal, comes in this gorge with a loud roar to the surface and crashes spectacularly over steep waterfalls down into the gorge. Along the steep rocks, bridges and footbridges lead past the impressive natural spectacle through the 200 m long gorge.

    The gorge is accessible only from below, after the Wimbachschloss you come back to the starting point via another route.

    opening hours
    May 1 - November 1, 7 am - 7 pm, weather-related changes possible

    If someone wants to do the Ramsau round trip, which also starts there, then you have to go right after the gorge downhill, otherwise you will not find the entry way. Is wrongly signposted. Otherwise you keep going uphill and waiting for a turn to the right.

    I love this valley. The National Park is really beautiful and it is worth to go to the Grieshütte.

    The gorge is beautiful and the € 2 entry is definitely worth it.

    Since this gorge is significantly shorter than the better known Almbachklamm, you should take your time. It is worth it! Personally, I find this gorge the most beautiful in the region!

    Have been there several times. The sound of the water and everywhere big and small waterfalls - just beautiful.

    The Wimbachtal is a more than 10 km long high valley of the Berchtesgaden Alps in the center of the National Park Berchtesgaden in the municipality Ramsau. Located between Watzmann in the east and Hochkalter in the west, the valley begins under the pass Trischübel (1774 m) between Watzmann and Steinernem sea and moves quite soon steadily in a northeasterly direction.

    An unforgettable natural spectacle. The 2 € entrance fees are well invested here.

    Beautifully designed gorge. After the gorge we continue to Wimbachschlössl or back to the starting point.

    Here you can experience the forces of nature up close. The few euro admission worthwhile!

    In clear weather a great view. To enjoy the hike without having to put up with sturdy shoes and a little more time.

    Class way to Wimbachschlössl. From the Wimbachschlössl forks the way and you can still hang a tour behind.

    The path through the gorge is not very long, but it is rewarded.

    Dogs are allowed in the Wimbachklamm and can run the distance (about 200m) without any problems (leashed!). Only a staircase with steps, where you can look down in the interstices to the river, could possibly be difficult ...

    Worthwhile.
    As a one-way route, go through the gorge on the way there.

    The dominant rock of the gorge is the Dachstein limestone, which was deposited in the Upper Triassic. Numerous fossils in the walls of the gorge testify that a sea must once have existed here. On a hike through the gorge to the Wimbachschloss you can pass a period of approx. 50 million years. The rocks that occur here are flake limestone, red limestone, radiolarite and chert-bearing limestone.
