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.

  • If you are a nature lover, then you'll love! The incredible beauty of Lake, turquoise-blue color. And this in cloudy weather. In the Sun, probably, it looks even more beautiful! Never seen such a beautiful Lake! You can take a boat ride, take a walk along the Lake, sit on a bench and just enjoy nature. Don't forget to take a photo, watch the sunset and dawn, spend a romantic rendezvous on the bench love and delicious sausages in a restaurant on the shore of the Lake. There's a terrific fresh forest air and relaxing, romantic atmosphere! Suitable for morning jogging and picnics, if there is you can arrange)). An ideal place for inspiration! In the evenings there is cool, I recommend you bring warm clothes and autumn jacket and scarf! From the shoe fit sneakers, but if you then decide to climb up to the Zugspitze mountain, which is near, it is best to take winter shoes and winter clothes, because upstairs can be snow and windy and in sneakers can be cold and slippery.

  • One of my favourite lakes in Germany. Fantastic for a day of hiking, it will easily take you a few hours to walk all the way round at a leisurely pace. you can walk the entire circumference or wander along one of the many trails in the woods. The water is crystal clear and the views are outstanding. Most people tend to stay in the area of the hotel so even in mid summer you can easily find a quiet spot. There's a reasonably priced car park near the hotel which opens until fairly late
  • If you have a small dog, be careful! There are many ignorant people going for walks with big dogs that are not on the leash! I thought german people would act more responsible.
  • Eibsee is a magical place. Just below the Zugspitze with a perfect view and wonderful nature all around it. Don’t try going there by car because it will be crowded and you will damage the nature there. You can walk around Eibsee. It might take you a couple of hours but it’s totally worth it. In summer the crystal clear water creates a perfect reflection of the mountains around Eibsee. One of the best places in Germany!
  • Excellent trail and views around the lake. At least 3-4 hours if you hike casually all the way around. Wear comfortable shoes and have camera charged and ready
  • Magical scenery... the loop around is a great 2hr walk.
