Until the middle of the XIX century the locals floated wood in the Partnach River flowing through the gorge, while now it's a natural attraction. Partnachklamm is several million years old: it was formed from the layered sedimentary rocks on the ocean floor that existed here in the Mesozoic era. Partnachklamm is one km long; the height of its steep walls covered with coquina varies from 1.75 to 86 meters. Streams flow through its walls, forming ice sculptures in winter. The gorge looks impressive from inside, but it’s even better to look at it from above, from the bridge on the slope.
