Höllentalklamm gorge


... a helluvan experience

Treat yourself to a very special nature experience in Grainau:

Do you love it wild and romantic at the same time? Then hike to the Höllentalklamm gorge. Here you have "live" the originality and purity of nature before your eyes. Deeply cut into the high mountains, the Hammersbach torrent plunges over boulders, falls foaming milky over rocky ledges into pools, dusts and roars.

Difficult sections lead through electrically lit tunnels filled with the dull roar. The air is fresh and clear with every breath, especially in high summer. The rocky gorge is easily accessible, about 1 km long and of a completely different charm than other gorges and ravines.

The path, starting at the Höllentaleingangshütte, stretches for a good 700 meters. A visit to the museum will give you an understanding of the history of the canyon. At the upper end of the canyon, the terrain slowly becomes more spacious again. Beyond the gorge, the trail leads to the Höllentalangerhütte, which is located in a sparsely vegetated valley floor covered with rock gravel.
