Near Germany’s highest mountain – the Zugspitze (2962m) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

A prominent sight and the pride of Garmisch-Partenkirchen: The Zugspitze. In this enchanting environment, the highest mountain of Germany is the center of all snow and winter pleasures – a paradise for winter sports enthusiasts. If you prefer watching great sporting events from the sidelines, the New Year’s Ski Jump in the Olympic city of Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a must-see. Franz Erhardt does not just offer the best sleigh rides, he also knows exactly which slope and which après ski stop is particularly worthwhile.

Skiing & Snowboarding

Let’s hit the slopes

The Garmisch-Classic Skiarea and the glacier area of Germany’s highest mountain promise alpine winter bliss for beginners and professionals alike. The three connected ski mountains Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Alpspitze offer a varied winter paradise with around 40 kilometers of pistes. Both families and very skilled skiers get their money’s worth. The Zugspitze Glacier Ski Resort offers an outstanding ski area at an altitude of 2,000 to 2,720 meters. Around 20 kilometers of slopes await top mountaineers, passionate skiers, and snowboarders.
