It was gorgeous! A mirror-like alpine lake, ice blue, surrounded by mountains, a village with a dear little church on the shore – all charming. There were even people swimming and sunbathing even though it was decidedly cool!! We decided to have lunch at one...More

Walchensee is not far away from Garmish. I used a car. But you can check buses availability locally or through internet. Bus network is good in Germany.
