Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The Schleifmühlklamm is not as mighty as the Partnachklamm, for example, but it does not cost any admission and there is much less rush. Here you can explore the gorge on paths and boardwalks all year round and listen to the babbling of the brook.

Beautiful gorge, which can be done for free.
Every second Saturday of the month from May to October, you can watch a local resident master grinder over his shoulder. Whether it still exists at the moment, I can not say, because the grinding mill is currently being restored / refurbished.

The hike starts at Pürschlingparkplatz in Unterammergau. From there, walk along the Schleifmühlenlaine through the Schleifmühlklamm. Passing the former grinding mills the path runs over several steps and walkways to the waterfalls worth seeing. On the route are some signs with information on whetstone making appropriate. A highlight is next to the numerous waterfalls the restored Wetzsteinmühle at the beginning of the gorge.
