The Breitachklamm is a gorge located in Allgäu next to the border between Germany and Austria. On the German end of the gorge there is a helpful exhibition hall explaining the different parts of the gorge and how such a gorge come into being.
Though I saw a lot of people of all ages I’d recommend to be careful while hiking this gorge. Mind your head, at least.
Right after this bend I went into an area with not much light as the rocks built a kind of roof with only a small chink of light above the path. At that time I had to think about the novel ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’ by Jules Verne.
Well, would you dare to continue your way?
After the dark part of the gorge I found the way to the light again. At the lower part I walked along this beautiful area until the end of the hiking path in Tiefenbach, Germany.
At Tiefenbach don’t forget to have a look into the exhibition hall of the Breitachklamm Gorge. There you will see a movie and some more info about the rock formations inside the gorge and how such a gorge come in being.
Tip: If you start your walk at the Austrian end of the gorge in Kleinwalsertal you would generally go downward. Besides that you would start at a the tighter part of the gorge and after going through the dark part (‘hell’) you will enjoy the wider part like being in ‘heaven’.
