It takes about 45 minutes to walk up to this lovely little lake from Garmisch along a footpath. After admiring the view and taking some refreshment you can continue the walk through the woods before crossing the Zugspitze railway and returning to Garmisch via Zugspitzstraße.

As with previous reviews this is a mini resort in a stunning situation. If you are walking Garmisch - Grainau - Eibsee this would make a great place to detour to and have a break en route. Can't say anything about the food and drink...More

Great food and fantastic view of the lake. Recommended if visiting Garmish. We enjoyed our stay not very far away from the center of Garmish. The view of the lake is terrific in the middle it has a respectable fountain.
