    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 into the rock within 10,000 years and is considered the deepest canyon in Central Europe. Since 1905, the impressive gorge (through bridges and footbridges) is accessible.
    High public traffic, paths on gravel, concrete, wooden planks and steel mesh.
    Above the gorge, the Breitach flows quietly in a wide bed and always offers beautiful gravel beaches and green meadows to linger.

    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.

    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.

    Once you have to walk through the Breitachklamm you have made, very worth seeing whether in the summer or in the winter

    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.
