Over thousands of year the river wimbach had being eroding the rock face in the Wimbach valley. The result is this awe inspiring gorge. The force of the water is so strong in places, that water pools have been formed from the water pounding down from the rock walls into the riverbed.
There is a safe wooden path along the gorge which allows walkers to be captivated by this unique work of nature.
Since the appearance of the Alps some 70 million years ago, these mountains have undergone weathering by wind and water. Melting ice and snow, as well as the friction caused by moving sand and gravel, have constantly been cutting deep into the rock and causing canyons and gorges. Among them, the most accessible and impressive are the Almbachklamm between Berchtesgaden and Markt Schellenberg and the Wimbachklamm in the Berchtesgaden National Park near Ramsau.
The waterfall Wimbachklamm is known since 1847 and has always been a "place of power" for all seekers of vivid impressions of life.
The number of tourists is growing from century to century - in 1882 here was only 8000, already in 1927 about 42 000, and in this age of more than 150 000 visitors per year. Stormy streams roar of falling water - a walk through the gorges and ravines of the Berchtesgaden Alps an exciting adventure!
