Fun on the slopes for the whole family Skiing like the world champions

Skiing like the world champions

The Werdenfelser region offers many possibilities for skiing or snowboarding.

There are easy slopes for beginners in Krün and Mittenwald, groomed World Cup downhill slopes in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and genuine alpine freeride areas like the Cirque in the Karwendel mountains or the Herzogstand at Walchensee.

All the ski resorts can be reached from Krün in less than 20 minutes by car and public transport. For families with children, there are attractive discounts.

  • In Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the Garmisch-Classic is Germany's largest ski resort and venue for the Alpine World Skiing Championship 2011. It offers five snow-covered valley descents and 18 modern lifts. The slopes range from easy beginner terrain to beautiful pleasure slopes such as the Bernadein, Längenfelder or Horn, up to spectacular slopes such as the famous Kandahar downhill for experienced skiers.
  • Under the Zugspitze, the Zugspitzplatt is Germany's only glacier ski area and offers fun on the slopes at 2600 m. This area offers ten modern lifts and incomparable views.
  • Mittenwald, the ski paradise on Kranzberg, offers ideal conditions for families with children. For those who prefer to go gently on the skiing but still are looking for a unique nature experience, this is the right destination. The local ski schools also offer courses for beginners and advanced skiers.
  • At Mittenwald, the ungroomed Dammkar slope, a high-alpine classic and Germany's longest ski run, offers the best conditions for ambitious freeriders.

Autumn blaze of colour

The alpine world of Karwendel awaits the harvest festival season with a wealth of experiences and pleasures.
The diverse and colourful cultural landscape and the living traditions of the Isar Valley farmers are the foundation of a wide range of things to do.
The Harvest Festival is a holiday season: every week, another village or town puts on its special celebration, with a farmer's market, rural crafts, village music and autumn specialities at the inns and hotels and restaurants. The whole village is part of it. Let the happiness catch you up in it, and join the celebration.

Harvest Festival

Winterlandschaft tief verscheite Bäume

Where stress and the hectic life head into hibernation.

Snow crystals glittering in the sun, the crunch of boots in frozen snow, and undisturbed peace and quiet all around. That’s high winter in the Upper Isar Valley. Away from the bustle of the ski resorts of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Mittenwald and Seefeld, visitors relax and unwind in the unique, untouched winter landscapes up and down the valley. Whether on foot, in horse-drawn sleighs, tobogganing, cross-country skiing or even on snow-shoes: quiet places in nature, to marvel at and to enjoy. The worries and stresses of everyday life take a winter break here!

Impressions of winter

Auch das ist Kunst, ist Gottesgabe, aus ein paar sommerlichen Tagen, sich soviel Licht ins Herz zu tragen, dass wenn der Sommer längst verweht, das Leuchten immer noch besteht.
