Tour: Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Zugspitze

This private tour will take you into Werdenfels County, a part of the German Alps, on top of the highest mountain in Germany: 2962 m high Zugspitze.
The Zugspitze is offering a fascinating panoramic view! You’ll see into Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland all at once. 400 summits altogether. If the weather is fine, there is a visibility of up to 250 km. This will be a downright unforgettable experience. Additionally, you can – just in between – cross the Austrian border in the western part of the summit. The “Austrian side” of the mountain is even offering an adventure museum plus an additional exhibition about the variety and beauty of the snow crystal. Too much information this high?
In this case make use of one of the gastronomic offers or just enjoy viewing the infinite alpine world.

Possible combinations on this tour:

After having been on top of Germany’s highest mountain there will be still some time for further activities in the area. All the following suggestions are depending on how long you want to stay on the summit and if you may want to have lunch there.

Combination 1: Zugspitze + strolling around in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a famous spa town, host city of Olympic winter games and numerous alpine competitions. Only the ensemble on Ludwig Street, protected as an historic landmark, and the Marienplatz in Garmisch with its lavishly painted facades are worth the visit.

Combination 2: Zugspitze + Olympic sports facilities + Partnach Gorge

Partnach is one of the two rivers running across Garmisch-Partenkirchen and simultaneously forming the border between the two parts of the town. A pathway is leading along the Olympic sports facilities and the big ski-jumping hill to Partnach Gorge. The ravine, which has been gouged by the Partnach within millions of years, is accessible and a particularly impressive spectacle of nature. Due to water dripping from the walls steadily, it is well advised to wear strong footwear and a rain cape – not an umbrella!

Combination 3: Zugspitze + Hiking Eibsee or Rießersee

Numerous lakes are in the surrounding areas of the Zugspitze, like the Eibsee or the even smaller Rießersee. Both are inviting you for a marvellous walk along or around the lake. Hiking around Eibsee will take about 2 hours, around Rießersee about 1 hour.
View on the Eibsee with Mountains and the Forest in the Background above are White Clouds

Combination 4: Zugspitze + Walchensee + Kochelsee

Instead of using the free way we will use country roads to reach our destination. Each one of these two lakes is a treasure of nature. This is a scenic ride across the “blue country” and a stop at the Viking village “Flake”, at Walchensee hydroelectric plant or in one of the countless bays will be a relaxing time-out for you.
