There is much to discover in historic Garmisch-Partenkirchen, situated one hour south of Munich. Walk along Frühlingsstraße and the nearby alleys and with the histories told by the famous "Lüftl" paintings on the houses' facades, that you will understand even if you do not know Bavarian.Times long gone become alive again when you have a closer look at the traditional farm houses of the Werdenfels region with their richly decorated balconies as well as when you view the Biedermeier style frescoes at the Gasthof (inn) Husar. A nice detour leads you to the “Alte Kirche” (Old Church), which is a nice Romanesque-Gothic church that dates back to the 13th century. Near the “Polznkasperhaus”, which is one of the oldest buildings, cosy cafes invite you to stop for refreshments, coffee or a delicious homemade cake.

Garmisch - Partenkirchen is also where you'll find the stunning Partnach Gorge (Partnachklamm). The gorge will cast its spell on you with its wild waterfalls, water rapids and tranquil water basins. Once upon a time, visitors trying to walk through the gorge risked their lives, but nowadays there are two safe paths available. A fascinating perspective view offers the iron bridge with its height of around 225 feet / 70 metres.


Close to the entry of the Partnach Gorge you find another attraction, the Olypic Stadium with the Ski Jump (for instance used for the most prestigious Four Hills Tournament).The first Olympic Ski Jump was built in 1923, in spite of the fact that the decision to hold the 1936 Winter Olympics in Garmisch-Partenkirchen was not yet made at that time. The mountain's steep slopes were not sufficient for the ramp and, therefore, it was necessary to build an artificial start tower that was 43 metres in height and 5 metres in width. Over the years, the jump was modernised repeatedly. In 2007, it was replaced by a completely new building with a 100-metre long start tower. At the top you will be 62 metres above the ground, free-floating. Therefore, the construction was given the nickname 'Olympic Cantilever'.

Out of town, into nature, you can experience the rough beauty of the breathtaking Alpine mountains. Whether you are a newcomer, an experienced mountaineer or a passionate climber – you will find Garmisch-Partenkirchen a paradise at the edge of the sky, surrounded by breathtaking mountain views and at the foot of Mount Zugspitze. The mountains rise up to almost 3.000 meters, rugged with deep gorges, with high Alpine pastures embedded in the mountains and rocky summits surmounting everything.Various tours starting at the Hotel ranging from simple, moderate to difficult can be chosen.

Alternatively one can take it the easy way and use the Zugspitzbahn (train) and/or cable car to get to the different summits. A special attraction is the AlpspiX, about 50 metres above the top terminal of the Alpspitzbahn cable car, two steel platforms, both 13 metres long, cantilever over the abyss. The footbridges alone - up to three metres wide - will be enough to give you an adrenaline rush. At the end of the observation terraces you will reach a glass wall - you are standing right above the abyss and look down 1,000 metres into the Höllental Valley as well as have a great view in the direction of Mount Zugspitze. You will certainly never forget these moments.



In the framework of the program we will try to offer 3 tours:

-          Partnachklamm, olympic stadium with the 'Olymic Cantilever'

-          roundtrip to the AplspiX

-          roundtrip with Zugspitzbahn and cable car to the Zugspitze

Dont forget to bring 'reasonable' shoes with you, if you want to participate!
