Germany’s most beautiful ski resort

Winter sports with both tradition and zeal

Those who belong to the discerning club of active winter sports lovers will think they have arrived in paradise just above the Olympic town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. A vast mountain panorama stretching as far as the eye can see and Germany’s most snow-sure ski resort, with its legendary pistes and comfortable cable cars at your feet: Winter sports lovers need look no further!

Even when the valley is shrouded in mist, the Zugspitze glacier ski resort juts through the fog like a sunny island in a sea of cloud at 2,700 metres above sea level. Experience the purest of pleasures while taking wide, sweeping turns down the 20 km of natural snow pistes at Germany’s highest ski resort and savouring delicious alpine cuisine in one of the excellent mountain restaurants.

Both beginners and experienced skiers will find their perfect line in the 40 kilometres of pistes at the Garmisch-Classic ski area, interlinked over three local mountains, the Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Alpspitze. The challenging Kandahar Downhill is a regular meeting point for some of the world’s best skiers, and a real magnet for ambitious skiers and snowboarders.
