Tips

  • Rainer Schmidt

    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.

    The name of the place, "Beim Stinkenden Wasser" (Stinkenden Wasser), indicates a smaller stream that carries or must have led strongly smelling water. It is possible that hydrogen sulfide was the trigger for the naming here.

    On some days it is so overcrowded here that you have to park in Grainau and then take the bus here. Get on the way early, then you will get a parking lot in the immediate vicinity of the lake.

    Nice round in every season. On weekdays, or if the weather is not so good, it is also possible to cycle here by bike.

    the Eibsee via-ferrata.de/der-eibsee-eine-perle-der-natur-am-fusse-der-zugspitze is one of the most beautiful - if not the most beautiful - lake in Bavaria

    The lake has a wonderfully beautiful color and the reflections of the mountains, the sky and the clouds are fantastic. It looks fascinating even in bad weather.

    This is part of the Grainau geological hiking trail.
    The name of the place is unclear. It may be due to a source that contains hydrogen sulfide.

    Around the whole of the Eibsee there are several beautiful places to take a short break or cool off in the lake

    Just breathtaking. It is worth doing a complete loop around the lake.

    The Eibsee is a blind lake, i.e. it has only one underground drain. Its 8 islands and the clear green shimmering water give it the nickname "Bavarian Caribbean".

    You will pass this point when walking around the Eibsee. But it didn't stink.

    Halfway along the circular route around the Eibsee, there is this small jetty with a great view of the Waxenstein. From here you have not only a great panorama, in the summer you can also go swimming great.If you do not feel like the entire trail, you can also be taken from the tour of the motor boat "Reserl" or let out. The rather less exciting south side of the lake could be saved. The prices (about 5 €) and departure times you should look at the Internet or at the boat rental before;)

    The Eibsee is a dream. As a tip: if you walk around it shortly after 6 p.m., you pretty much have the lake to yourself.
