Winter Sports in and around Munich

One of Munich's most attractive features is its proximity to the Alps. Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze, is the perfect location for any ski or snow trip. Getting there is half the fun, as transportation to the top of the mountain is provided by an old-fashioned locomotive. The Zugspitze can be reached by a one and a half hour train ride south of Munich. A popular skiing resort and a picturesque town close-by is Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Munich offers a variety of other winter sports as well. Indoor and outdoor ice skating is especially popular. Several venues open in winter to allow fun on the ice. Skates can usually be rented on site.
