After just a short hike, we reach the first highlight of the day,
"der Partnachklamm" which was declared a natural monument back as early as 1912. A narrow gorge with a roaring mountain stream. Our route takes us through this narrow gorge whose natural beauty never ceases to amaze visitors.
The enjoyment is short-lived as after about 800m the gorge opens up and we start our ascent up the so-called Kälbersteig. The next 2.5 hours are uphill all the way until we reach the Königsweg, a road which we take at a comfortable pace to the Schachenhaus. Once we arrive here, we enjoy a well-deserved lunch break and enjoy a great view of the surrounding mountains.
After a decent rest, we will view the Schachenhaus built by King Ludwig II with its opulent "Turkish room" and the Alpine garden with strange plants from all over the world. There are two variations for the return trip; the more experienced hikers can descend the Partnachklamm via the valley, Oberreinttal (somewhat out of the way), or we can retrace our steps back down to the valley.
