#4 of 12 in Outdoors in Garmisch-Partenkirchen
Three interlinked mountains--Hausberg, Kreuzeck, and Alpspitze--make up the Garmisch-Classic ski resort. The Bavarian Alps locale has a maximum elevation of 2,050 m (6,726 ft), with a vertical drop of 1,350 m (4,429 ft). More than 40 km (25 miles) of runs accommodate skiers of varying skill level. One of the most famous runs here is the 7 km (4.35 mi) long Kandahar trail, used by skiers during the 1936 Winter Olympic Games and annual World Cup events. A number of cafes can be found at the mountains' summits, offering shelter from the elements and views over the slopes.

  • Great vacation and shifting rhythm, if you want to 3-4 day to completely change your life! Even if you're not skiing or snowboarding, you get all mountain fun: and breathtaking views, and Sun sprays and instant Alpine suntan! Do not hesitate, go to the mountains of Bavaria: convenient-from Munich is train in Tyrol, you can go on almost any stop and climb then hiking routes or via cable car. And from Large special train goes at the top, you can reach the highest peak of Germany Zugspitze (2950 ft), this whole adventure for the whole day. And up there, there is no bad weather, you will pass all clouds and dense fog, and still will go towards the bright sun! Just dress warmer!
