#4 of 112 in Nature in Bavaria
Water Body · Nature / Park
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. To visit Eibsee and get the most from your holiday in Grainau, create itinerary details personal to you using our Grainau online trip itinerary maker.

  • Beautiful lake. Amazing views. So calm.
  • Spectacular views! A very enjoyable walk around with plenty to see.
  • Beautiful scenery. The paddle boat is a must-try. You get better view from the middle of the lake.
  • Super love this place! Very relaxing views and easy trails to follow
  • Such an amazing place! Best swimming here and night at lake is wonderful. I recommend to park at parking spot at road before you get to the lake - it is free and not that far.
