Like already mentioned in my blogpost about what to do in Munich during Summer, this city has one huge advantage: It’s so close to so many beautiful spots for a daytrip. This is why I decided to give you a few ideas on where to go and what to do.
The first place I can highly recommend to you is Partnachklamm, which is a gorge in Garmisch, a bit over an hour from Munich.
I’ve never been to a gorge, so I had no idea what to expect but it was gorgeous! We were really lucky because the weather was beautiful and sunny, so the rays sometimes found their way through the rocks and lit up the whole gorge in a beautiful light.
If you go there by car, you can park at the Olympic Stadium in Garmisch and the walk your way up the the entrance of the gorge. There’s a fee of €4 to get into the gorge and then you can spend some time around there. You can either just walk around the gorge or, what we did, work your way up to Eckbauer, a typical bavarian restaurant up in the mountains. The walk is about 1.5 hours long and a bit uphill, but it’s still easy enough. And the view up there, especially on the day we chose, is breathtaking!
The food at the restaurant didn’t convince me 100% but it’s still a good choice of traditional bavarian dishes and with that view I don’t really mind if the food is 5star or not.
If you don’t want to walk all the way up to Eckbauer, there are a few other restaurants on the way you could make a pit stop (or a final stop).
We then took a gondola down, but obviously you can just walk your way down again. The gondola took about 15 minutes and is €9.50 for adults (one way).
REMEMBER: A gorge can be pretty cold and you can get wet in there, so definitely pack a jumper or something and maybe a rain jacket. Even though the day we went in there was super hot, we used our jumper, at least for a little bit.
