You know how much I love sunsets and sunrises. While spending a weekend in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, I tried to find a place where I could get some interesting colors and did not require hiking in the dark. Here is what I got…
INFO & PLANNING TIPS - Sunset Garmisch Partenkirchen
Garmisch-Partenkirchen is surrounded by mountains…not the best place for sunrise and sunset if you are not willing to hike up or down in the dark. I still found a place where I could observe the colors changing on the mountains and especially on the Zugspitze, the highest peek in Germany that you can easily reach by cable car. Those were not the best sunrises and sunsets ever but it was still very peaceful and enjoyable.
And it made me realise how I really need to learn the HDR method to improve the light in my pictures.
TIPS FOR TRAVEL PLANNING ADDICTS - Sunsets in Garmisch Partenkirchen
Here is where I went for sunrise and sunset. A farming area with little paths at the end of Längenwangstrasse.
The first sunset started with some light yellow and then turned into intense pink. The colors were above the Zugspitze and its neighboring mountains.
In the morning the clouds so all I saw was the light slowly illuminating the top of the mountains. It was peaceful especially as I was accompanied by a little bird.
The second sunset displayed less colors but I still had a great time.
I never get tired of sunsets and sunrises. Do you?

Yes. This is truly a beautiful place. I went in February for a short skiing weekend. Zugspitze was a pretty amazing experience. Although unfortunately on the day I went there was a snowstorm so we couldn’t see out very far once we got to the top. Love the sunset photos!

Thanks Jessica. I would have loved to go skiing there although the snowstorm is not so tempting…
