4.7/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
At the base of Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain, you'll find Eibsee. A peaceful lake, it is enjoyable year-round. In warm weather, take a dip in the water or rent a paddleboat. If you plan to swim, bring water shoes to protect your feet from the rocky beaches. You also can take a stroll on the lakeside path, or hike farther up the mountain for views of the lake below. In winter, ride the gondola up the mountain to view the magical frozen landscape. In the colder season, remember to bring any snacks or drinks with you, as the food stands and restaurants are open usually only in the warmer months. Make Eibsee part of your personalized Grainau itinerary using our Grainau family vacation planner.

  • You have to walk around this lake to get the best view. On the bridge near Untersee you will see the crystal clear water surrounded by pine trees with huge mountains behind. Amazing scenery! There is a waterfall on the west side of the lake. There is also a smaller lake called Frillensee. There are some ducks around the lake, it is forbidden to feed them.
  • Great bike ride with awesome scenery. The bike ride covered roughly 8k and included both several inclines and smooth downhill patches. Ride takes about 40 minutes.
  • Beautiful location to spend some time, plenty to do outdoors including water activities and nearby mountains.
  • Freindly staff, cleaning room and Good location it's close to cable car to the top of mountain.
  • Ideal to make the dog a nice walk.
