    Here is the lower entrance to the Breitachklamm. After walking a few meters into the gorge, you will reach the ticket booth.

    The Breitachklamm is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the winter season. In the summer season it is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is closed for a few weeks in spring and autumn. Entry costs 4.50 euros for adults and 1.50 euros for children.

    You can find more information at breitachklamm.com.

    In addition to the Höllentalklamm, it is the deepest gorge in the Bavarian Alps and the deepest rock canyon in Central Europe. Every year, around 300,000 visitors embark on the 2.5-kilometer hiking trail through the gorge (Wikipedia).

    The river is created in Baad, a district of Mittelberg in the Kleinwalsertal by the confluence of Turabach, Derrenbachund Bärguntbach. It flows in a northwesterly direction through the valley, which was formerly called Breitachtal after him. At the Walserschanze, the Austrian-German border, the Breitach reaches German territory and squeezes through the narrow Breitachklamm. Then the coming from the west Starzlach opens. At the Iller origin near Oberstdorf, it merges with the Stillach (middle upper reaches) and the Trettach (right upper reaches) to Iller (Wikipedia).

    The Breitach has cut 150 meters deep into the rock within 10,000 years and is considered to be the deepest rock canyon in Central Europe. The impressive gorge has been accessible (through bridges and footbridges) since 1905.
    High traffic, paths on gravel, concrete, wooden planks and steel grating.
    Above the gorge, the Breitach flows calmly in a wide bed and offers beautiful gravel beaches and green meadows to linger over and over again.

    After crossing the gorge, the Breitach still loses nothing of its impressive appearance.

    A very imposing gorge, one of the largest in Europe. The way from cash 1 (with the Walsercard you get per person 0,50 € discount) is great and not very difficult. Children should always be taken by the hand. About Waldhaus you can walk to Riezlern in the center.

    Due to the corona, this is not an entrance but the exit. When choosing a parking space, you should currently choose whether you want to go through the gorge first and then hike back around the outside or hike first and then join the gorge as a highlight. The gorge is definitely very impressive. The entrance fee is absolutely fair and with the guest card you get a little discount.

    About 21 km long is the Breitach, which belongs to the river system of the Danube. Here is definitely one of the most impressive parts of the river.

    No matter what the weather, every gorge is an experience in itself. The Breitachklamm is beautiful in that you can do it well with baby carriages.
