The ski resort of Garmisch Partenkirchen is situated at the foot of the Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Germany. Here numerous cultural and sporting activities are orgnised. In the surrounding areas there are many interesting sites to visit. The ski slopes of the Zugspitze (2964m) in the Garmisch Classic ski area have contributed to making this ski area renown worldwide. The cable car and the railway take skiers up to the runs in no time at all!

The Garmisch Classic ski area offers extremely varied and snow sure ski slopes covering 60 km in total. There are many highlights here, including skiing on the glacier, wide valley runs, beautiful hiking trails and an overwhelming four-country view from the summit with a 360 degree panorama. The Garmisch Classic ski slopes are predominantly of medium difficulty and are generally long - up to 6.5 km long. The most difficult run is the almost 4 km-long Kandahar World Cup run that most experienced skiers just have to have a go at when in Garmisch. Also, cross-country skiing and walking are recommended in the Garmisch-Classic ski area as there are over 170 km of cross-country trails.
