Visit Garmisch-Partenkirchen in 2024

Garmisch-Partenkirchen serves as a destination for year-round outdoor activities. In the winter, it becomes a winter wonderland, home to Germany's highest peak, Zugspitze, offering over 60 km of ski slopes. The town hosted the Winter Olympics in 1936, and today it continues the legacy, holding the annual New Year Ski Jumping, a part of the Four Hills Tournament, and the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup events.

The town is not just for winter enthusiasts. When the snow melts, it transforms into a paradise for hikers and mountain bikers with well-marked trails of varying difficulty levels. Garmisch-Partenkirchen is also famous for the Partnach Gorge, a natural monument offering a thrilling walk through waterfalls, rapids, and caves.

Despite its popularity as an outdoor recreation hub, Garmisch-Partenkirchen maintains its traditional Bavarian charm. Colorful frescoes (Lüftlmalerei) adorn the facades of houses, and the region's distinct customs and traditions are celebrated through festivals and events throughout the year.
