I had 10 days unplanned itinerary after my stay in Berlin and I remembered I saw a very beautiful photo of Lake Eibsee from Instagram, so I decided to check it out and spent 2 days in there. I took the train to Garmisch-Partenkirchen then changed a bus to Eibsee. It was in mid-July and supposed it was very warm... More

Excellent place for a short excursion even during winter! 7 km hike all around the lake in -15 Celsius, you feel your lung is getting cleaned up, you can cut the air it is so heavy. We will definitely return springtime to do it again! This place is breath-taking in every season throughout the year.

While you're changing from the mountain train to the cable car (or vice versa) take an hour out of your vacation schedule to take a short walk around the Eibsee. It's a pleasant little Alpine lake with fantastic views. Highly recommended.

Eibsee Lake is a beautiful alpine lake in the southern part of Bavaria, Germany. It is also located about 8 miles southwest of Garmisch-Partenkirchen beneath the Zugspitze Mountain. It is also about 100 yards from the Zugspitze Mountain cable car building. The lake is actually owned by the family that owns the Eibsee Hotel (on the banks of the lake)... More

Near to Grainau. Small lake. Takes 2 hours to walk around. Good 4 star hotel at the end of the lake. Can be reached by rail from Grainau or Garmisch.

Lake Eibsee is a beautiful lake at the bottom of Zugspitze. There is a nice restaurant on the water along with the Eibsee hotel. It is a beautiful lake with a nice walking/bike path that goes around the whole lake. So many beautiful different views of the lake and the surrounding mountains.

This is a great place to visit. Parking lot is on the main road to the lake. Bathrooms are located in the lower level of the hotel, we used even though we weren't staying there. The trail only has 1 access point, at the hotel, but I would recommend walking to almost the other side of the lake. This is... More
