Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a small town surrounded by mountains. Its picturesque setting draws hundreds of thousands of tourists and ski aficionados every year which, at times, gets a little unnerving. There is a small pedestrian zone in both parts of the town; otherwise roads are narrow...More

Garmisch-Partenkirchen has upgraded it's facilities to stay competitive with other ski regions close by. It offers a nice combination of skiing and relaxing. If you enjoy skiing as well as tanning on a terrace with a cold beer - you will like Garmisch.

a small and quiet town with beautiful views onto the Bavarian Alps, nice walking, good accommodation and fresh air; typical mountainous wooden and brick architecture, a lot of nice cafes

Go there in summer, and enjoy fresh air, ride a bicycle to the nearby lakes, drink a beer in the open field cafes, visit nearby castles. July is time to swim in the mountain lakes. A very nice place for everybody.

Just like Budapest was two towns initially (Buda and Pest) so it was with Garmish-Partenkirchen. Personally I prefer the only town and architecture of Partenkirchen. Lovely painted fronts of buildings with some nice eating houses along the Main Street. We had a nice meal at...More

Lift passes are for 1/2 day, 1 day and 2 1/2 days - I think it's geared up almost entirely for weekend ski-ing as it's only a small area. Ski rental from the hire place at the main lift area - by the OlympicPark - was... More
