Tips from Alexandra Brown on Garmisch-Partenkirchen

We (two adults + 7-year-old son) were spontaneously in Garmisch-Partenkirchen for 4 days in February. Usually we always go to Austria for our ski holidays and I have to say, we were pleasantly surprised. The Garmisch Classic ski area turned out to be a great, family-friendly ski area with good value for money both on and off the slopes. The only thing we missed was the small, alpine-style vibe of a normal ski resort - Garmisch-Partenkirchen feels like a real city. But that is totally subjective and the advantage is that you have a wide choice of accommodation and restaurants. Conclusion: a successful holiday!

Ski area a bit limited

We know now we should have chosen a larger ski area - as this is a little limited for a week ski holidays. Both me and my husband didn't realise how much progress we had made and in fact we had skied most of the good runs in the first 2 days. Lovely ...

A great ski holiday in Garmisch
