Garmisch-Partenkirchen is exclusive in every sense. This tourist town is situated among gorgeous mountain backdrops at the piedmont of the 2,962 m tall Zugspitze and possesses fantastic pristine alpine sceneries. Here you can come closer to nature and encounter classic Bavarian traditions.
Sports activities here are a unique experience. New Year's ski jumping, for example, has been taking place here for about 60 years and is considered one of the most popular annual ski jumping events in the world. A total of 50 athletes from different countries speed down the slope, jumping up to 140 meters. Watch the world’s best jumpers fighting for the golden eagle, a desirable trophy for each participant, and share the best moments of it at the Olympic Ski Stadium with thousands of hardcore winter sports enthusiasts and 100 million more fans worldwide. After Garmisch, the competition continues in other skiing meccas, such as Innsbruck, Austria.
