Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    The small village of Grainau lies directly below the steep rock faces of the Zugspitze - it is hardly spectacular and picturesque at the same time. Not only are there quaint guesthouses and cozy accommodations here, but from there, the famous cogwheel railway takes you directly and very nostalgically up to the highest peak in Germany.

    A romantic village in the middle of the mountains. Lots of tourists come here

    Good starting point for many tours. Eibsee, Badersee easy to reach. Station for the cog railway towards Zugspitze.

    Very idyllic place with many houses that show a loving "aerial painting". Nice traditional craft shops on site.

    The village Grainau is divided into Ober and Untergrainau. And lies romantically at the foot of Waxensteine.
    However, the locals are already a bit miserable and not exactly welcoming as the Allpenpanorama

    Grainau - located directly on the Zugspitzbahn, with which you can comfortably reach the highest peak in Germany.

    Grainau is a very beautiful and cozy village at the foot of the Zugspitze. Ideal starting point for slopes, cross-country ski runs, runs and hikes.

    Immediately in front of the village, the Waxenstein rises in the south.
