We took the train to Garmisch from Mittenwold where we were staying. On arriving at Garmisch we went underneath the main platforms to a small station from where the train for Zugspitze leaves. The Garmisch Classic, which we had hoped to do, closes in April (apparently for about a month) but we were more than happy to purchase a ticket... More

The views are simply incredible, this is an absolute must as a day trip if you're staying in Munich! Quite easy to get to - train to Garmisch-Partenkirchen from Munich's main train station, then another train to Eibsee and finally the cable car up to the peak.

About an hour away from Munich - reach Garmisch-Partenkirchen by a train. You can buy a bavarian ticket for the train travel, which can cover your public transport in Munich and to and fro train journey from Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Do a bit of research on bavarian tickets to understand the rules and what it covers. At Garmisch-Partenkirchen you will need to... More

Skiing all year can it get any better. On a clear day you can see forever. It is very hard to beat the view and the ride up the Gondola.

An hour or so from Munich, easy access by car. We went up by train to Eibsee then by cable car - goodness, took our breath away as the last part of the ascent was so steep. Snow on top but warm and sunny so the views were just superb.....out of this world in fact. Then go cable car to... More

The scenery during the summer is beautiful, great for walking biking and just relaxing with stunning views and clean air. The place changes in the winter to a winter wonderland with picture postcard views great for skiing.

We drove two hours for this and it was worth it. The snow is fantastic. The town of Garmish is great. Good place to stay. It was very good experience expecially for our children.

My husband and I spent a day skiing at zugspitze. It was wonderful! We stayed at the eisbee hotel and only had to walk across the street to get to the tram. We rented equipment and the rental process was quick and easy. The ski hill was not very crowded as it was a Monday but the runs and lifts... More

It's a must! You won't regret! Better for skiing (super quality slopes for all skiers). But weather makes a differences - you won't be able to see anything in the clouds. Double-check the forecast and look here http://zugspitze.panomax.de , also it takes time (!) to get there and get back.
