We stayed here for a week, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We don't ski, but we did enjoy the many great walks. Wonderful.

We visited Garmische during our winter stay in February 2014 while visiting Munich. We read a lot of good reviews of Garmische, and wanted to take a look at the German mountainside and experience being at the highest peak in Germany- Zugspitze. Since we were in Munich, we took a train from the Munchen Hbf train station and purchased the... More

The area is limited - even with Zugspitzen included. 3 days of skiing, then you are bored and find it hard to find variation. The transport trails between the areas are many and this gives the count of skiing slopes a somewhat misleading number. Especially since several of the transport trails are designed for two ways traffic (!) meaning that... More

It was our third stay at Garmisch, but the first time at the new year day week. The ski slopes where overcrowded in particular the Kreuzwankl sli lift. this happens because all blue slopes end at this lift and there is no way to go back to the Kreuzeck area without taking this lift. Some times we had to wait... More

Being only 1 hour from Innsbruk this is a good ski re sport for a short break. There are two ski areas one on the glacier and the other called Classik. The ski areas are connected by buses and trains about 20-30 mins apart by train. The Classik is a fairly standard mix of blue and red runs with a... More

We stayed here three nights while touring. The town is in a great location to the castles. There is a cute old downtown with cows being led down the street and a new shopping area which also has nice restaurants all within walking distance. The picturesque mountains are all around you.

This resort is comparable to Aspen or Vail in Colorado. The Advacado bar makes the best Amaretto Sours we have had. The sweet and sour is all hand made with real fruit.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a lovely German ski resort town. The painted buildings and quaint town are fun to stroll around. It's easy proximity to Munich is another plus and a very easy train ride away.
