Garmisch-Partenkirchen and its surroundings offer a wide range of things to see and do in summer and winter. We would like to give you some suggestions for your individual leisure activities.
View of the Zugspitze massif – view from the ascent of the Wank, Partenkirchen’s local mountain A visit to Germany’s highest mountain is probably in every ATLAS Posthotel guest’s travel diary. From Garmisch-Partenkirchen station, the ride on the Zugspitzbahn, one of Germany’s few cogwheel railways, is an experience in itself. From the Zugspitzplatt below the summit, the summit cable car takes you up to the 2962 m high mountain. From the Eibsee railway station you can also reach the summit directly by cable car. You can find out more about the Zugspitze and other mountains around Garmisch-Partenkirchen at www.zugspitze.de.
he Partnachklamm gorge is a much-visited attraction. The Olympic ski stadium with its impressive new ski jump is just a 30-minute walk from the ATLAS Posthotel Garmisch-Partenkirchen. From there it is less than half an hour on foot or comfortably and pleasantly by horse-drawn carriage to the entrance of the Partnachklamm gorge to experience a natural spectacle worth seeing.
