The Breitachklamm is a gorge created by the river Breitach in the Allgäu region in Southern Germany. It is located at the exit of the Kleinwalsertal near Tiefenbach, a city district of Oberstdorf.

The upper entrance of the Breitachklamm is located near the Walserschanz in Austria, with limited parking space, whereas the lower one in Oberstdorf-Tiefenbach offers a visitor center and ample parking.

  • Such a lovely place. Great service and location. It's recommended to bring a rain coats and an umbrellas. The long route is about an hour and half and pretty high gain elevation.
  • You will be thrilled to visit this Gorge. Simply fantastic. It took 3 hours for my family with our kid who is 2.5 years old to cover this round trip of around 6 km long. 3€ parking charge .
