    In summer connoisseurs use the rock as a slide. However, if you are not familiar, you should not imitate it. Caution, risk of death!

    The Starzlachklamm is a gorge at the foot of the Grünten between Sonthofen-Winkel and Topfenalpe in Bavaria.
    It was washed out by the Starzlach, which rises at an altitude of 1070 m between Grünten and Wertacher Hörnle. The name Starzlach means "over the rocks jumping Ach", also "torrent". In the Starzlachklamm you meet "foaming water whirlpools, giant water mills, the high, wildly romantic side gullies, a toric rock roof and a dry gorge". In the gorge, the water crashes, among other things down a more than twelve -meter-high waterfall.
    The upper part of the Starzlachklamm lies in the 1972 designated nature reserve Schutz der Grüntengebietes, the Great Forest, the German Alpine Road and the Wertachtels. The gorge is protected as a natural monument and was classified by the Bavarian Environmental Agency as a valuable geotope.
    In addition to the numerous hikers, the Starzlachklamm gains further tourist significance through its use in canyoning. Also as the Allgäu climbing area, the gorge plays a role. In some steep, partly overhanging gorge walls climbing routes have been created. From 1990, modern sport climbing started here in the district of Oberallgäu. "For the first time in Oberallgäu, extremely difficult routes ... comparable to international standards have been climbed here". Also, the experience-pedagogical use increasingly plays a role. Due to the expulsion as Geotop the Starzlachklamm is also a geotouristisch much visited destination in the Geopark Allgäu.

    Right at the waterfall, it goes into the gorge, but before still look past the Klammwirt.

    Along the Starzlach there are always flat spots to take at least a foot bath.

    In summer, when the heat is high, the visit is very nice due to the geological form of the gorge and is pleasantly humid and cool. It is a natural monument.

    Short gorge, the trails are slippery even in dry weather in some places, sure-footed and sturdy footwear recommended. The gorge is also allowed for dogs, but not recommended for small dogs. The gorge can be traversed from both sides, whereby I felt the way from Burgberg the more beautiful way.

    The Starzlachklamm I can only recommend, great waterfalls, beautiful trails, with children feasible, sturdy shoes and sure-footedness, alpine experience required, because it also goes over roots, and stairs.
    Pushchair suitable / no
