Dividing the two villages in half this fearsome, if shallow, Alpine river comes tearing down from the mountainsides leaving the evidence of its devastating path in its wake. By the thundering waterfalls, like the one pictured from near my hotel, lie piles of mountainside debris like tree trunks ripped straight out of the ground and deposited miles downriver. In the summer the river looked harmless from the town bridge, but in the spring the snows of the mountains melt and cause water levels of the Partnach rise dangerously.

Directions: You can walk along the Partnach river along Partnachweg from where it meets the Loisach in Garmisch to far into the mountains.
