Garmisch-Partenkirchen: World-class fun on the slopes

 

The story of winter sports at Garmisch-Partenkirchen began more than 80 years ago; today it’s a modern ski resort with facilities for skiers of every standard.

Try out your carving turn where the international star skiers usually fight for a hundredth of a second advantage: on the legendary Kandahar downhill course! With two versions and a total altitude of 1,800 metres, this 7-kilometre-long course offers an unforgettable experience.

If you want to go even higher, the ‘Zahnradbahn’ (cog railway) will take you to the Zugspitze. Germany’s highest ski area promises an abundance of pure natural snow. And if you order your tickets for the Bavarian Zugspitze Railway online, you can earn or redeem Miles & More award miles.
