We will first drive through the landscape made famous by the Blue Riders before passing the Murnau Moor. Shortly after the moor you will enter the Gap which is the door to the Bavarian Alps.
Garmisch was first settled by the Illyrians in 2000 BC. They later merged with the Celts and in 15 BC, the Romans dominated the area. In early times Partenkirchen and Garmisch were two separate villages; they only joined each other in 1935!
Just outside Garmisch-Partenkirchen we will visit Germany’s highest mountain the Zugspitze riding a cable car to 2962 meters above sea level. On a clear day you can see over 150 km! Here I can show several points of natural beauty in the area, including the hidden away ravine of the Partnachklamm.
An unforgettable prize of nature is the Partnach Gorge, a treat the entire year for young and old. Along the way to the cable car that will take us to the top of the mountain, I know of several of nature's gems I will be happy to show you.
