Cheap ski holidays Grainau – the cosy village at the Zugspitze!

Grainau (Zugspitze)

The small resort Grainau's origin can be traced back 700 years. It lies in the shadows of the mighty Zugspitze (2,962 m) and Waxenstein (2,277 m) in the Wetterstein mountain massif. The Grainau valley offers a wonderfully unique and original panorama with its two mountain lakes and the picturesque landscape. The Bavarian village itself is divided into Upper Grainau and Lower Grainau and demonstrates country idyll. The most prominent landmark is the new-baroque church St. Johannes with a very pretty onion dome. The village has aout 3,500 inhabitants and is located on an altitude of approx. 760 m.

The village is a wonderful retreat place, offering magnificent views, but also providing access to lively Garmisch-Partenkirchen, which is only approx. 7 km away. In Grainau, holiday guests can explore winter sports activities, such as ice skating on the Bader- and Eib lakes, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, sledging and of course skiing in the ski areas of the Zugspitze.


New Year's jumping, Kandahar run and international flair - all this can be experienced round about the Zugspitze! Additionally regional highlights, e.g. the impressive Zugspitze itself or the Partnachklamm, add to the area's charm. The region offers 10 different ski areas in 2 countries all around the Zugspitze. The Zugspitzplatt is very snow sure, where you will find numerous runs just below the Zugspitze. When riding with the Eibsee-lift, which takes you up to approx. 2,950 m, right below the highest point of Germany, you can enjoy the breathtaking panorama. For après ski cosy ski huts, bars, pubs, clubs and discos offer fantastic meeting and party points or you can enjoy a toboggan ride or relax with many other leisure time activities offered in this holiday region.
