    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.

    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.

    Characteristic of the Wimbachtal are huge debris flows, because of which the upper part of the valley is also called Wimbachgries. At the top of the valley, they are a good 1.5 km wide. The weathering material pulls down from the area of ​​the Palfelhörner. The debris is under the influence of gravity constantly, but hardly ever noticeably in motion. After heavy rainfall larger material loads can be observed.
    The Wimbachtal drains over the eponymous Wimbach. In the upper valley, the huge debris flows dominate the picture. Here tributaries arise above ground, but then seep into the loose material in which they unite underground. The creek rises in dry weather at about 800 m above sea level. NN in several closely spaced sources of debris, less than three kilometers from the mouth. A sidelined source serves to supply water to a large part of the population in the south of the Berchtesgadener Land. In the lower section of the Wimbach runs through the short, but worth seeing Wimbachklamm. A few hundred meters after leaving it, it flows from Ramsau-Hirschpoint from the right into the Ramsauer Ache.
    During the Ice Age glaciers eroded the valley and deepened it. Today, the rock bottom lies more than 300 meters below the surface of the rubble filling the bottom of the valley. Before its gravel the Wimbachgries was probably filled by a lake. Unlike the Königssee beyond the Watzmann, which is surrounded by solid Dachsteinkalk, offered the Ramsaudolomit in the area of ​​the Wimbachtales erosion less resistance.

    The Wimbachtal / Grieß is very scenic. Until the Wimbachschloss the way is very easy. No surefootedness is required (except through the gorge, but you can go a long way).

    Nice trip in any weather! we were drizzling what we did not enjoy! After the Wimbachklamm I recommend, the way to go to the castle, there you can see chamois now and then!

    Breathtaking gorge.
    You only go the gorge in one direction. The way back bypasses the gorge.

    The gorge is also on bad weather days a nice destination. After heavy rains or thunderstorms, it is particularly impressive!

    After you have paid the two euro entrance to the cash machine begins the short Vergüngen, as I mean. Thought the way through the gorge was longer. The beautiful pictures had a different impression. 🤔

    A detour to the Wimbachklamm is well worth it. The € 2.00 admission are not too much for this.

    In the dry months, the empty riverbed seems so peaceful, but one senses what mighty masses of water here after the snowmelt make their way, if you consider the scree and the tree trunks.

    A very beautiful gorge with many waterfalls and not so steep climbs.
