German Ski Resorts

Germany’s main ski resorts boast enviably short transfer times, with the majority being just 1.5 hours from the major international airports such as Munich, Innsbruck and Salzburg. Skiers might also like to consider the option of driving to Germany from the UK, with the journey being faster and with fewer tolls in comparison to driving to France.

A ski holiday in Germany offers an Alpine experience much like that of Austria, but often for a more budget-friendly price. The rustic mountain villages are wonderfully traditional and unspoiled, dotted with wooden farmhouses and cosy eateries. Expect a laid-back, peaceful atmosphere that is away from the crowds and full of Bavarian charm.

Alpine dining in Germany is all about hearty, traditional dishes that promise to warm you through and fuel you up for a day on the mountain. Indulge in the ultimate winter sports classic, schnitzel and chips, which is best enjoyed with a large refreshing Stein beer. Much of the produce served from the cosy wooden eateries will be locally sourced, featuring cuts of meat and Weisswurst veal sausages, accompanied by plenty of Sauerkraut and potato dumplings.

Germany offers snow-sure, glacial skiing in Garmisch Partenkirchen at 2,962m. This means that skiers can visit throughout the season and enjoy fantastic snow cover. Germany has also invested in state-of-the-art snow canons, so that snow can be guaranteed on the lower slopes too, even during a drier season. There is also a good choice of modern, high-speed lifts such as the Zugspite cable car, which can whisk 580 skiers per hour up to Germany’s highest peak.
