I followed the water stream for about 40 km long. I enjoyed it. There are some area where you can go barbecue just few miles from the village in the western direction.

This is a great place to ski or snowboard. This is not the largest of areas but there is lots of choice, mainly red and blue slopes with the odd black one. For the best of the best skiers, this area may not be demanding enough. We saw lots of families. Hiking is also an option. The main area is... More

Garnish classic. Has some lovely ski areas but is not suited for adult first time skiers. We went with a group of friends who had never skiied before and even after lessons had a great deal of trouble with even the blue slopes. The 'beginners' blue slopes should mostly be red intermediate slopes. Beginner really means someone who skiied a... More

Walking the streets of Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a treat in itself. Mixed among the young are older residents dressed in traditional Bavarian attire. The merchants are truly friendly, helpful and speak English as they eagerly assist you. The scenery with the mountains and fast flowing streams are a photographer's dream. Conveniently located in the midst of Germany and Austria's most beautiful... More

Even though it wasn't very crowded, my family enjoyed skiing at Ehrwald more, even with more crowds there. The variety of lifts was much better.

We very much enjoy our time here. We've come every year to ski for the past 3 years. We are not good skiers, but our kids have taken lessons every year from the Skischule Garmisch and they are fantastic with the kids. We have had such great experiences with so many of their staff we can't give them enough thanks... More

The water varies from milky green in spring to clear in summer, the river is charicterfull, and varies with ice formations in the winter, to surging waters in the spring, and a gentle babble in the summer. The banks are lined with large boulders in the town, all told, as nice as a river as your ever likely to find

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.
