Zugspitze is a mountain that has the highest elevation in Germany. Go up for the best views around, and catch sight of four different countries, three glaciers and enjoy a full range of activities. Tickets available at Alpine Adventures.
Eibsee is a peaceful mountain lake nestled against the dramatic faces of the Zugspitze. In the evening, Alpenglow, an optical phenomenon that emits a red glowing band at sunset, illuminates the shimmering water and massive craggy peaks. During summer, you’ll enjoy a swim in the refreshingly clear waters. An easy footpath takes you around the lake in 1.5 hours by foot or 40 minutes by bike.

Traditional Sled Race
The Garmisch-Partenkirchen bouldering hall is one of the most traditional bouldering halls in Germany. The small but demanding climbing area comprises 160 indoor climbing square meters and 130 outdoor climbing square meters. A small training corner, the never-ending climbing wall as well as a cozy bistro area and the summer beer garden complete the offer. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or a professional - everyone gets their money's worth with the five different levels of difficulty.
Germany's highest village, Wamberg doesn't have much of anything going on. There is one restaurant to enjoy a beer and the peaceful atmosphere. Other than that, just enjoy the simple lifestyle of farming, sheep and endless views above Garmisch. Take the new Eckbauerbahn to the top and hike to the Wamberg. A nice loop that is kinda rough on the knees coming down but if you have time, just take it slow.
Located on the Wank with some of the best views in the valley. The Tannenhutte is a modern hut with great menu. It isn't too far of a hike if you have little kids with you that aren't so keen on hiking for hours. Great place for a sundowner as it faces west.
