I’ve lived in Garmisch, Germany for a little over a year. Today I’m sharing with you my top 3 things to do in Garmisch, Germany!
Walk Around Eibsee
A crystal clear lake located at the bottom of the Zugspitze. Lays one of the prettiest lakes in Bavaria. The water is teal in the summer and normally frozen over with a layer of snow in the winter.
The lake is surrounded by a walking trail of gravel. This walk is about 4 miles long and is good for both children and elders. During the summer you’ll see people paddle boarding, swimming, and having a picnic.
Take The Zupspitze Cable Car
This trip is not a cheap trip, you can check out prices here. The views are breathtaking and you’ll be able to see Garmisch and Eibsee from a bird’s eye view.
Once you’ve made it to the top there’s tons of places to take pictures. Make sure to walk all the way around the deck because each side offers a different perspective. During the summer time you can grab lunch and hang out on the patio and enjoy the view.
Before moving to Europe I had never heard of an Alpine Slide in my life. (I don’t think they are very common in The United States. I could be wrong, comment below if you’ve seen an Alpine Slide in The United States.
This Alpine Slide is located at the base of the Eckbauer it cost 2 Euro to ride and it lasts about 5 mins. My children have enjoyed this slide many times. Please note that if it’s rainy or wet the slide will be closed.
The Partnachklamn Gorge is a must-see in the summer or winter! It’s absolutely breathtaking. It’s a good place to visit with children of all ages but small children might be challenging given the narrow trail.
