Author’s recommendation

The summer path next to the cable car also offers a beautiful and not too long snow shoe trail, which will be very enjoyable even for the inexperienced. The piste is open to skiers and tobogganists. The Olympiahaus right at the Olympic Ski Stadium is a great place to stop for refreshments and a meal. If you are in the mood and you have got the time, don’t forget to visit the new ski jump with its futuristic architecture. There are regular guided tours on Saturdays at 3 pm (Sign up at the Garmisch-Partenkirchen Tourist Information: Phone +49 8821 180 700

The base station of the Eckbauerbahn cable car, which will take you effortlessly up the mountain, is right at the car park for the Olympic Ski Stadium.
