Zugspitze and Partnachklamm ravine


I would like to take a day trip from Munich to Garmish to go up Zugspitze and also would like to see the Partnachklamm ravine/gorge. It will be in early June, I will not have a car. Is it possible to do both sites in one day by public transport and then return back to Munich in the evening?

Thank you.

Emerald Diva,

Going up the mountain is always weather dependant and a matter of luck. We couldn't see anything on Jungfraujoch or Mt Rigi last year because it was rather cloudy on both occasions, but since we were there, we had to take the cable cars/trains up.

I believe it will be the same this time around too. Comes rain or shine, nothing is going to stop me from taking Zugspitzebahn up the mountain. :-)

thanks eldnik for getting back to your original post, I'm now considering adding the Partnachklamm to our Zugspitze outing (depends whether the 16yr old who has never seen snow will leave the mountaintop, though).

Oh I would never suggest not going up the mountain. Our first time was on a lovely sunny day, views for miles around. The 2nd time was in heavy snow, coldn't see a thing, still fun though.

What I was trying to say was that your choices for way up/down may be limited by weather conditions. The Eibsee cable car was closed when we went up on the good day, so we had no choice but to take the railway. It was open when we came down. It is very nice to do the round trip.

Ozzie 201o,

Definetely add the Partnachklamm is you can. It is pretty amazing. Do check whether it is open though. It was closed, due to dangerous conditions, the whole 4 days we were in Garmisch-Pertenhirchen. It opened again a couple of days later and we drove back from Fussen just to visit. It was well worth it.
