Located at the foot of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain, and the Werdenfels mountain range, Garmisch-Partenkichen is one of the most important health resorts and the No. 1 location for winter sports in Germany. In 1936 Garmisch hosted the Winter-Olympics and in 2010 the Alpine World Ski Championships. We invite you for a stroll around this charming, lively village with its traditional houses, painted facades and Bavarian charm. Later you can enjoy pure nature – on top of the Zugspitze mountain from where you can have an overwhelming view of the Alps and Upper Bavaria (weather permitting).
From Garmisch-Partenkirchen you can easily reach the following destinations:
The Partnach Gorge with its wild waterfalls, water rapids and tranquil water basins, declared a natural monument in 1912.
