In the town of Tiefenbach, not far from our holiday home, you will find one of Swabia’s favourite destinations - die Breitachklamm. (The Breitach Gorge). Here, the streaming water of the 2.5km long gorge flows through narrow passes within high rock formations next to a tightly constructed walk way. You can hear the thunder of the water crashing through the pass and at the same time, you can see the unchanged natural surroundings of the Breitachklamm in all its beauty.
After visiting the Breitach, you can set forth on beautiful walks that start right by the Breitachklamm. Why need round of a perfect day of sight seeing and walking with a typical hearty Bavarian meal and well deserved beer or two at the Dornachalpe or Sesselalpe? Sound like a good idea? We think so.
