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!

Surprisingly versatile ski area

Our skiing holidays in Garmisch-Partenkirchen last winter was a real delight which was unexpected - I say that as we were travelling with our 2 teenagers. Everyone can enjoy themselves here as the ski area is really versatile. There is snow sure skiing with varied slopes for all levels. Our children had a great time and we were not too worried letting them ski alone. We took some walks through the beautiful surroundings at the end of the day while they were still hurtling down the slopes. A very successful ski holiday all round as there is something for everyone in Garmisch-Partenkirchgen

Easy to get to ski resort

Fly to Munich, get the train and you're there! There's good varied skiing from the Hausberg area which has tree-line slopes up to the Zugspite glacier where there are wide slopes for cruising. Garmisch-Partenkirchen is very pretty and charming with lively bars like The Irish Pub and Zubel where there's some friendly apres ski going on. Good for short ski breaks

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 place though with nice atmosphere and good hotels. Recommend for intermediate skiers who are not looking for miles and miles of pistes.

A great ski holiday in Garmisch

My skiing holidays in Garmisch last winter were a big success, everyone enjoyed themselves here. There is a snow-sure ski area (thanks to the glacier) with varied slopes for every level. Our children really enjoyed themselves here and made lots of progress too. We took some walks through the beautiful surroundings. A very successful ski holiday as there is something for everyone in Garmisch.
