Cable Car

by FlywithHarry

Planing a visit to GP late March.
I would like to visit a mountain top aroung GP, with a local cable car /(or train):

Maximum time spent: 1,5-2 hours.
I'm not interesting in any winter sports, only interested for nice views -taking pictures etc.

Any suggestions?

Hi - I'd recommend going to Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Germany. We were there mid-May and it was freezing - about 1 degree (C) and windy - snow all around! It was great! Check out

Zugspitze, of course!!!

The Zugspitze was amazing, the ride will cost you 43 euro (2004) make sure if you go up you don't go to near the end of the day or you won't have anytime to chill up there!! a cheaper alternative although it was closed when I tried to do it in 2004 is to go up the austrian side near Ehrwald/Obermoos I think it was about 30 euro from there. (austrian side)

What's the duration of a round trip to Zugspitze?

Re: Cable Car

by german_eagle

It's a bit too long IMO and beside that I think it's not the best option for you. When you're on top of that mountain you can't see it, right?

I personally would go to the Wank. The gondola up there takes 20 minutes from Partenkirchen. It's a walking/hiking mountain, not a ski mountain anymore. Elevation is much lower than the Zugspitze, but it will provide fantastic views of the valley AND the mountains (Zugspitze). The gondola runs 21 - 30 March 2008.


Travel Tips for Garmisch-Partenkirchen

photos around GAP - 5 -

by MrBill

These do not really count as tips, but then again, what is better than a good photo to tell a story? This is a picture of Lermoos taken from Ehrwald looking across the valley that separates Ehrwald from Lermoos and the neighboring town Bieberwier. They are a 25 km drive from Garmisch along the road by Grainau. The photo was taken at about 13.00 on a January afternoon.

downhill skiing

by MrBill

I used to like skiing in Garmisch-Partenkirchen a lot. It was a great little mountain to have in my backyard.

I don't want to sound like a spoiled brat, but it seems that the Gemeinde Garmisch-Partenkirchen have done everything possible to ruin the skiing experience in GAP? They have built a new Kreuzeck gondola, which is super fast compared to the old one, but in exchange they closed the Wank bahn and several connector lifts on the mountain. This has had the effect of channeling more skiers onto fewer runs and causing longer lift lines.

On the Alpspitz they closed the T-bar at the top, and now you have to ski all the way to the mid-station to catch the chairlift back up. This entails a long, flat, ski-out on a cat track, which is death for snowboarders. Then they run the double ski lift at half-capacity because they need to pick-up passengers half-way up the mountain who are skiing the short run at the top. They also closed the smaller T-bar on the Oesterfelder, which was a nice run to warm-up on. This means skiers now have to shoot the gap (another cat walk) and then ski all the way around to the mid-station gondola for a ride back up. There is a flat section so you have to keep your speed up or you risk having to pole later on the flats. This usually means you waste some good verticle feet of skiing.

They closed the Wank, which was a nice release valve for when GAP got too busy on the weekends. The Wank used to have a nice small ski hill feeling and usually only locals went there. Now if GAP is too crowded, locals will either drive to Lermoos & Ehrwald or to Seefeld in Austria.

These moves were designed to save money, but they have resulted in GAP becoming less fun to ski at. This is surely an unintended consequence. Perhaps the solution was not to close lifts, but to partially privatise the ski areas and allow expansion.

I still love GAP, but I would not book a week long ski holiday there anymore.

If you want to go up the Zugspitze, then best you set a whole day aside. From Garmish you take the train to a certain spot, then you catch the cable car to the next spot and to get right to the very top you catch another cable car. Coming down you have the option of doing it two ways.

Vierschanzen-Tournee - 4 -

Almost perfect conditions to stand outside in the arena and watch the jumpers. There is room for about 20.000 guests in the old stadium. There are sitting and standing only areas. Outside the arena there are many food, refreshment, and souvenir booths set up for the event.
