Garmisch Classic Ski Resort Germany

The quintessential German ski town of Garmisch Partenkirchen (or Ga-Pa for short) is ground zero for skiing in Deutschland. The town has the nation's largest standalone ski resort on its doorstep, complete with World Cup standard piste trails & modern lift system - Garmisch Classic.

Nearby is Germany's highest peak, the looming Zugspitze (2962m). The ski resort of the same name is the country's highest and most snow-sure, topping out at just below 2720m. Both ski resorts are connected to Garmisch Partenkirchen by trains, cable cars, gondolas & cog railway providing a travel & ski experience worthy of anywhere in the world.

The proximity of the Garmisch ski resorts to better known skiing areas in the Tyrol & Arlberg of Austria make it a perfect addition to any European road trip or ski safari.

Garmisch Classic Skiing Terrain

Garmisch Classic has an impressive set of statistics including a skiable vertical of over 1300m & a longest run of 9km. The terrain is very much all about the on-piste groomers. Advanced riders will enjoy the seriously fast valley runs, two of which are rated as intermediate, but should have sections marked in black! There are excellent lifts, trails & facilities for novice skiers, but very little for the freerider.

Garmisch Classic Accommodation

The village of Garmisch Partenkirchen is the ultimate German holiday destination & has oodles of quality Bavarian hotels & guesthouses. Previously two separate villages, Ga-Pa has two distinctly different faces. Garmisch is the more modern, lively & commercial side of the ledger. The Partenkirchen side of town is the opposite, having retained much of its traditional architecture & charm, it provides the most pleasant accommodation location.
