    There are public parking spaces at the Eibsee (7:00 am to 10:00 pm) which are only 100m away from the lake. The daily charge of € 3.50 is fine.

    In the Eibsee there is the possibility to swim. The crystal clear water invites you to. So if you are traveling with children, you will not get around it. So take a towel. :O)

    There is a circular path around the Eibsee. This is about 7.5km long. A beautiful well-developed hiking trail.
    Should that be too long, you can half the distance with the motorboat "Reserl" drive (demand stop "Seespitz") and run back only half the round. With some Kurkarten e.g. Grainaucard is the trip by motorboat for free, otherwise the trip costs 5 € / adult or 2.50 € / children.

    Or you make a complete Eibseerundfahrt (about 20 minutes) for 6 € / adult or 3 € / children.

    In addition, there is the possibility of rowing boats (8 € / hour), pedal boats (10 € / hour) and even slide boats (11 € / hour) to borrow.

    Of course there are souvenir shops, snack bars and restaurants around.

    The loop around the Eibsee is also feasible for the untrained and offers some great views of the Zugspitze and the Wetterstein Mountains from the north shore. In the summer and in good weather very busy.

    It is worthwhile in any case once around the Eibsee to run.

    A wonderful tour. An emerald green shining lake with the mountain backdrop of the Zugspitze in the background make it a dream.

    In summer there is something for everyone in the background of the gigantic mountains and in front of a crystal-clear lake with its inviting bathing bay

    Unfortunately, the parking fee is now € 6 for 4h parking + € 1 per additional hour. Leaving it there overnight is no longer possible and costs 50 € fine.
