The Partnach Gorge (Partnachklamm) is a 702 m long and partly 80 m deep gorge incised in the limestone layers of the Wetterstein massif by the Partnach torrent (a minor tributary of the Danube) in the Reintal valley near Garmisch-Partenkirchen. In 1912, the Partnach Gorge was declared a natural monument and is since then also accessible.
