Spend a relaxing day in gorgeous Garmisch-Partenkirchen, home to the Zugspitze, the highest point in Germany.

Garmisch is full of ways to spend your day, ranging from alpine adventures to shopping and downtime in a beautiful location. Hiking trails criss-cross the Hausberg, the Alpspitze, and the Kramerspitze, many leading to mountainside restaurants where you can treat yourself to a Windbeutel (Bavarian Cream Puff) with ice cream and Helles Bier.  Bike paths extend up and down the Loisach river and through the low level forests, and the Bavarian Zugspitze Train or Cable Car will take you above the clouds to the cross at the summit of Germany’s highest mountain, Zugspitze, or the AlpspiX viewing platform on the Alpspitze.  Staying closer to the center of town,  you have opportunities for shopping, or for a short hike involving both nature and history, you can hike past the Olympic Ski Jump to the Partnach Gorge, and return over the mountain with a stop at the Graseck.  Before departure, you will want to make sure to enjoy a dinner at one of Garmisch’s many traditional Bavarian or other popular restaurants.
