The Breitachklamm, which is a good destination even in bad weather. I personally think: "The more water, the more spectacular." A crossing can be made within a good hour. At the end you can stop off at Alpe Dornach.

During the melting of glaciers in the last ice age, over 8,000 years ago, the Breitach bore through the massive rocks. This created the deepest gorge in Central Europe, the Breitachklamm, which is 2.5 km long and approx. 150 m deep.
The history of the creation of the Breitachklamm goes back to the beginning of the 19th century. In 1904, courageous people from Oberstdorf discovered the hiking trail through the gorge and made it accessible. Not far from Tiefenbach, the water of the Breitach makes its way through a narrow gorge with vertical and overhanging walls almost a hundred meters high.
