For the price of a ticket I would think it had more to offer. All groomed and not much variety. Plus it bottlenecks to get on both the first lift and the next chair before you can spread out.

This is a great place for a few days skiing. Less than 2 hours from Munich airport and an easy drive it offers a range of slopes that suit all types of skier from beginner to advanced. The on slope mountain restaurants are good and service across the area very good.

It can get really crowded on weekends. My advice is to go on a slow day. The runs are fun - but it can get really busy when the ski days are super busy.

There are w few mountains routes near Garmisch - Garmisch Classic is one of the easiest - you can go there with small children, also even with a buggy or stroller. A lot of amazing viewpoints. All part are quite wide, you can decide if to hike/walk next part or take a lift (bahn). Highly recommended for people who are... More

This part of the town (and the rest of Garmisch-Partenkirchen) is enchanting. The river provides opportunities to see ducks swimming, eating and enjoying life in the middle of a busy town. The buildings are beautiful, historic and well-presevered.

It grown up a bit since last time we were here. There's a market once a week which was pretty cool and it's streets are flat and very walker friendly. Can't wait to go back!

This is the most beautiful charming city I have ever seen. Buildings are quaint and the nature scenes spectacular. I live the side street cafes for coffee and cakes/pastries

This is a ticketing arrangement by the Zugspitz cog railway to get you to come back and "do" another mountain on another day at a discount. I was staying in GaP for a weekend so it worked for me. The two mountain trips are different, so it would be a bit off to prefer one to another. But after two... More

Bought the ticket with Zugspitze. Cannot do both on the same day. Take note of a 45 minute walk to reach cable cars at the mountain tops

Slopes are generally good and smooth in the morning, but gets bumpy later in the day after many skiers using it. They separate the beginners area well, and there's a kiddy slope, which then progresses to a beginners slope, and so forth. Each slope has a pulley nearby to bring you to the next difficulty. The ski lift quad chair... More
