The Almbachklamm...

is a quite spectacular gorge, a regular "Viamala", at the east foot of the Untersberg, on the Bavarian side, between Marktschellenberg and Berchtesgaden. The Almbach creek has it's source high up on the Untersberg flank and carves it's way down first through a steep and narrow valley, then spectacularly down waterfalls, natural basins and past steep limestone and marble rock cliffs to the valley of the Königsseeache river, which itself flows after only several kilometers into the Salzach river.
A remarkable spot, well worth visiting...

My first Klamm ever, after coming down Untersberg! Some people gave me a ride to the entrance. I also remember the "Marmorkügelmuhlen" there, and the big waterfall at the end of the trail! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your comment, ncst! I've been there many times in the past years, and this time I thought it was time to go and shoot at least a couple of photos, as I know that canyons and the like are very appreciated here on SummitPost. The one snag was that I never could actually get the whole thing in view on the camera - maybe I should try to get above the Klamm somehow...
I find that Marmorkugelmühle very romantic (there is one in Fürstenbrunn as well!), and I have just posted a photo of it...
Cheers,
Eric

borrow a line from yourself "spectacular gorge" is the only way to describe it. And a beautiful album you have put together to share with the world is beyond measure.
Thank you, Eric.
Cheers,
Marc
