The Bavarian Alps
EIBSEE & ZUGSPITZE
Eibsee is a lake 9 km southwest of Garmisch-Partenkirchen below the Zugspitze in the Wetterstein Mountains in Bavaria. At 2962 m above sea level, the Zugspitze is the highest peak in the Wetterstein Mountains and also Germany's highest mountain. Due to its location below the Zugspitze and its clear, green-tinted water, Lake Eibsee is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the Bavarian Alps. "Balm for the soul" is the 7.5 km long Eibsee circular trail with a fantastic view over the lake with its little islands and the Zugspitze massif in the background.
