Eibsee, Grainau

4.7
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.
