Just over one hour from Munich, is the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and at its end the stunning lake Eibsee and its many shades of green. This is one of my favorite places to spend a weekend in Bavaria. Mountains and lake: Nature is breathtaking!
INFO & PLANNING TIPS - Eibsee
Eibsee, almost 1000m in elevation, lays the base of Zugspitze, the highest peak in Germany. The tour for this lake is easily accessible. It is a very enjoyable walk with lots of shade and a view of the 8 small islands surrounded by vibrant green.
Eibsee in pictures
The loop around the lake is an easy stroll with many different views of the surrounding mountains and of the 8 islands with light green.
My favorite part of the tour was on the Northern bank. From there you get magnificent views of the mountains behind. And I was lucky to get beautiful reflections.
Eibsee - other lake
Although considered one, there are parts of Eibsee which are separated. Below is one of these ‘smaller lakes’ with again another shade of green.
Western tip of Eibsee
At the western end of Eibsee you walk in a beautiful forest witch also shows shades of green. It feels very peaceful.
Eibsee from above
I always love seeing a scenery from above. At the lake, you can take the Eibsee Cable Car to the top of Zugspitze and get breathtaking views of the lake and the surroundings mountains. This an impressive steep ride but as you can see on the photos below, the views are stunning. Notice the small islands surrounded by vibrant blue.
