  • Garmisch classic refers to the three ski mountains Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Osterfelderkopf and thus on the traditional ski mountains around the resort. In contrast to many great ski areas, where dominate ski motorways, Garmisch retains an individual charm, so that any departure has its own character. Special treats are the slightly more demanding runs, E.g. the long and steep Kandahar, but also the lonely Bern ADE departure and departure of high-alpine Easter fields (including a free ski area in this area, where everyone can be individual can test outdoors). Due to the low altitude and the incomplete artificial snow-making, the offer is thinned out often at an early stage in the spring, also require the safe skier Sulz-single and icy slopes. But overall, Garmisch classic offers great skiing fun on the outskirts of Munich. In the summer is the area as a hiking destination of interest; nice tours are for example the climb through the Höllentalklamm about the inflatable control yoke on the very demanding and high-altitude tour on the Alpspitze or the Kreuzeck.

  • We skied here with our kids 18, 15 and 11. Great resort, with lots of dining options. We were very impressed with the facilities and the staff was very helpful despite our lack of German communication...  more »
  • If you're in Munich do not let pass the opportunity to come to Garmisch! You can do it by train, shopping in the machine tickets Werdenfels Pass that serves you for the full day, roundtrip 19.00 Euros and if you add an adult more €5,00, and can travel up to 3 children under 15-year-old on the same ticket. Take advantage of to make the journey from early, visit the old part in Partenkirchen, walk through the pedestrian zone of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, a meal at a traditional Bavarian restaurant. And if you have more time, good climate and budget to climb to the Zugspitz and observe the landscape from the highest point of Germany. Another option to visit is the Partnachklam and the Skistadion (1939 Winter Olympics headquarters... future), there are guided tours and you can even upload to Ski jump platform. There is much to do in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, views that remove you the air, nature and culture, ideal to come with your family... in summer or winter always is good choice!
