Hiking Highlight (Segment)
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.

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.

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.

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.
