Skiing Zugspitze

The Zugspitze is Germany's highest mountain at almost 3,000 m. The ski resort is located on the Schneeferner, Germany's largest glacier. The high elevation guarantees snow reliability almost 7 months a year as well as spectacular views above the clouds. The winter sports resort is accessible from Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Grainau, which are both located in the valley. In addition, cable car lifts go up from Eibsee in Grainau and from Ehrwald. Along with carefully groomed natural snow slopes for skiing and snowboarding in a high Alpine landscape made of rock and ice, the ski resort offers powder snow slopes for freeriding as well as toboggan runs.
