Absolutely worth an hour before you head into the Partnach Gorge. A little soft on detailing the history of the 1936 games but interesting nonetheless. The ski jumps are a sight to see, would love to go back and see it in action. The coffee shop at the far end has great cakes👍

Wonderful setting and impressive ski jump with dark Nasi history. Well worth visiting small museum clearly illustrating Nasi influence on Olympic Games and persecution of Jews at the time of the 1936 Winter Olympics.

There is a lot right here in this area to do, and is a place to go all year long. When we went it was fall and had just started getting cool. There is an alpine coaster here, a museum, the ski jumps, and the entrance to the gorge. Parking is 2euro per hour, there is a handful of free... More

We took a guided tour through this impressive structure and it was great. If you are interested in a bit of background about history, stats and development of the Schanze, this is recommended. It takes about 1.5 hrs but time flies. And walking up the structure and look down where the jumpers take of is as scary as impressive. Loved... More

The stadium has eerie Nazi architecture, but the base of the Eckbauer lift is here. Beautiful views and a nice walk back, including Partnach gorge.

we were with friends who organized a tour guide "Andrea" who explained everything in great detail and with knowledge and humor. It took over 2 hours staring from the ground up to the top of the Olympic schanze!

This was a nice place to visit with interesting history. First, I'd never seen a ski-jump in person. Second, I guess it's one of the few places Hitler and Eva Braun were ever photographed together in public. Dark history but still history.

When you are in Garmisch-Partenkirchen you have to go see the ski jump. Of course in summer without the snow , it all looks a bit abandoned.

I was not aware how close this site is to Munich. While staying there, we decided to visit PartnachKlamm, and this site was literally right on the way. The bus drops you off right at the Olympic site, and it is free to walk around and absorb the sights. The ski jump is still used for competition, but was not... More

The Olympiaschanze‬ is impressive, but there's nothing much to see. The nature around it offers many options - so if you already near it, it's worth a short visit. otherwise - don't take the effort.
