We had booked a Zugspitze - Garmisch combo ticket. The bases for these are about a 20min drive from each other. Both offer spectacular views from the top. Garmisch Classic offers a bit extra as one can walk a bit more comparatively.

What a great place to ski! We watched other skiiers do two 360's and land it perfectly. They have timed runs, look-outs on top of the mountains, gorges to ski between, and even easy cross-county type runs with beautiful views! The kinderland was perfect for...More
