We had an our to spare waiting for the cogwheel train to the Zugspitze and took a stroll to get a bit to eat... No such luck, everything except for the ice cream parlor and the Burger King was closed.

My family and I went to these two twin towns. The historic significance was very interesting. Mountains looked like a painting with snow on them most of the year. There is a wood carver up the mountain on the way to the Castle at the top of the Austrian Alps within 20 minutes from Garmisch. He carves very intricate wood... More

A picturesque place in particular around Christmas. Not to far from Munich and great to drive in mountains. You can visit newschwanstein castle ( the one they copied for Disney castle). And Germany lives up to its reputation as clean and efficient!!!!!!!

It is a quaint wonderland of a town. Took the train and beautiful,snow,cattle and the little houses for animals and hay. Seeing the Zugspite was beautiful and in the snow made it even more real. Went to top and sat and had hot coffee and stood outside at the highest spot and snow flurries everywhere. The ride up and down... More

Our seventeen year old granddaughter planned our stay in Munich during our two week tour of Europe from Prague to Paris for our family of six. She discovered the Garmish Partenkirchen area through Trip Advisor so we planned to journey there from Munich early one morning in July 2014. We arrived at Garmish and discovered the Garmish Classic summer experience... More

Take a good look at what you want to achieve and purchase the relevant ticket. Loads of options available and the staff at the Zugspitze Bahn are 100% helpful. The classic ticket (Plastic chip and pin card) allows travel up and down the Zugspitze and Alpspitze by various means i.e. Cogwheel train Seilbahn etc. Changing trains is easy but arrive... More

This offers enormous variety and could provide several days of activity. We went up by Alpspitz Bahn, one of the most exciting I have ridden. Unfortunately it was quite cloudy so the view from Alpspix kept appearing and disappearing and we never got the full scary effect. We took the cable car down to Hausberg and then walked to Kreuzeck... More

We went to the top to take a walk in the Alpine gardens and stand on the viewing platform. Both were great. So was the beer and pretzel. But, the walk down to the next gondola was incredible. It is pretty easy. I would advice having walking sticks, because it is pretty steep and there is lots of fine gravel,... More

We were just passing through, and we stayed at a family run hotel which could have been better, the scenery is to die for but the one evening that we were there didn't give us enough time to enjoy the town.
