The anticipation of a exciting time in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is great. Whether thrilling top-class sports events such as the City Biathlon, New Year’s Ski Jumping and the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup or traditional Bavarian challenges such as the Horn Sledge Race on Epiphany. Guests in Garmisch-Partenkirchen can also gently enjoy the winter magic: ice skating at Mohrenplatz, varied winter hikes or a visit to the Christkindlmarkt. Winter sports enthusiasts will get their money’s worth in two ski resorts or on the cross-country ski runs.
The traditional ski area for young and old! The skiing area Garmisch Classic includes the three ski mountains Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Alpspitze. With a total of 40 kilometres of pistes, everyone will find the right challenge for themselves here. The Kandahar is one of the most famous downhill runs. Also for top athletes this downhill with its 940 meters of altitude represents a challenge of the top class in various competitions. The gentle slopes of the Hausberg are particularly suitable for families and beginners.
The Zugspitze ski area is “Top of Germany” not only because of its height. Spectacular views and 20 kilometres of pistes exclusively with natural snow make a skiing day on the Zugspitze an unforgettable experience. The mountain gastronomy provides the necessary refreshment in between. In addition to the ski slopes, two toboggan runs provide further fun on the “top floor of Germany”.
Not only the ski slopes are a sporting challenge in winter, but also the cross-country ski trail network of around 28 kilometres in length. On extended tours you explore the winter landscapes and breathtaking alpine panoramas. The trails are groomed daily and are available free of charge. The entrances to the trails are easily accessible on foot or with our free shuttle.
Already fit for more? On to the biathlon for everyone you can step in the footsteps of Laura Dahlmeier, Magdalena Neuner and Miriam Neureuther – under the guidance of professionals, of course. Further information on registration can be found at the Tourist Information Mittenwald or on www.gapa.de.
