Summer Weekend at the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort

Enjoy a long summer weekend in Garmisch-Partenkirchen!

Summer is the perfect time to spend a long weekend at the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort.  Perfectly placed in the heart of the Bavarian Alps, you will have  plenty to do in this mountain paradise.  Both Innsbruck and Munich are about an hour away by train, as is the summit of Germany’s highest peak, the Zugspitze.  Surrounded by mountains, Garmisch has countless cable cars, hiking and biking trails, allowing you to enjoy the summer sunshine in the peaks and valleys.  This self-drive package gets you a hard to find room at a great price, while self driving keeps you safe.
