    Such a wonderful natural event - a highlight in every season. The paths around the lake are very easy to walk, even with children.

    We drove with the Zugspitzbahn from Garmisch to Zugspitzplatt. There we are on the glacier in August. Then we went by cable car to the summit, a fabulous experience, as we had a sensational television viewing. On the way back we did a pedal boat ride on the Eibsee. Then it went by bus home.

    The Eibsee is a crystal clear natural wonder right at the foot of the Zugspitze.
    Located 13 km southwest of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, right at the foot of the Zugspitze, is one of the most beautiful lakes in the Bavarian Alps - the Eibsee. Created more than 3000 years ago by a landslide, the mountain lake belonging to Grainau offers a variety of sporting activities and excursions.
    In addition to various hiking trails, the mountain lake invites you to swim in summer. Active people can rent pedal boats, rowing boats and stand up paddling at the Eibsee Hotel and explore the lake on their own. For those who prefer it a little quieter, take a tour with the electric boat - always in view of the Wetterstein Mountains with the Zugspitze.
    In winter, the Eibsee nestles in a picturesque winter landscape that invites you to explore and linger.

    The section with pebble beach invites you to take a break with a panorama! If you take the route the other way around, you can reach the section quickly with bathing suit.

    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.

    The Eibsee is the natural highlight on the Zugspitze in Bavaria
    Natural idyll for relaxation and being active: The Eibsee in Bavaria with its green, shimmering, crystal clear water. The Zugspitze massif in the background. Peace and quiet at 1,000 meters above sea level. Here at the Eibsee you feel like you are in paradise. Close to nature to recharge your batteries: on the paths around the picturesque gem, on a boat tour on the paradisiacal lake or on the terrace of the lakeside restaurant Eibsee-Pavillon.

    Very nice view, unfortunately this tour is very crowded
    In a cold winter, as was the case this year (2018), the yew could be committed sagar because of a thick ice sheet.

    Beautiful path around the lake, unfortunately in the high season very crowded - but you can avoid it, if you know it.
