Great Views and Easy Transport
Sep 2019
We had heard the Eckbauerbahn had recently replaced their cable cars and it was certainly an upgrade over the old. Sleek bubble to protect you from the elements as you glide to the top or bottom. You can purchase tickets at either end and enjoy a quiet ride gently bobbing while you enjoy the view. The peacefulness coupled with the views of the mountain and Garmisch-Partenkirchen are worth the price you pay to ride.

A gondola takes you to the top with beautiful views along the way. An even more beautiful views are at the top! A must-do when in Garmisch-Partenkirchen!

great trip on the new cable car
Jun 2019 • Friends
This is a return visit but found that they have built a new gondola cable car and it is great. When I got to the top I had a snack in the lovely cafe/restaurant there then walked down the winding track to the Partnacklamm gorge - which is a must for a visit.

Nice place for family skiing
Feb 2018
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and complexity of the ski runs in Garmisch-Partenkirkhin. There are trasses of any level, which makes the resort a family holiday.

A ride with a meal!
Sep 2018 • Friends
This is a 15 minute gondola ride up the mountain from the Olympic ski area just outside Garmisch-Partenkirchen. You can also pay to have breakfast on the ride. You select your drink, you get served a Bavarian breakfast (brats and pretzels). Really cool thing to do. Enjoy!

Well worth ride up.
Aug 2018 • Family
We stumbled upon this cable car by accident and we decided to take the ride up as we never rode in such a small gondolas. And that what is so exciting about it. Very small, open, old looking gondolas for two people. Lovely, quite long ride with beautiful views. I would recommend it.

Best thing we did in Germany!
Jul 2018 • Couples
This was the first thing we did in Germany and our favorite memory. We did the ""Im Biergarten für 2", where they set up a small table on the gondola with beer, weisswurst and schnapps. You must email or call two days in advance to reserve, and we were nervous because the weather report was looking bad, but I'm so glad that we decided to do it! The journey is not long, so we had to eat fast, but the views were spectacular. We decided to walk a just a few minutes down the trail from the top since it was looking a bit stormy, and found the world's most beautiful beer garden barely 5 minutes out. We both tried the fresh buttermilk (not for us, but I'm sure if you are a buttermilk person, it would be fantastic!) and they suggested we pair it with the dampnudel(?), which is a large dumpling covered in vanilla custard (this was definitely for us!). Overall, a fantastic experience!

Exhilarating ride up
Jun 2018 • Family
The ride up was very exhilarating and exciting. It is a small cable car which fits 2 and it felt like as though we were going to fall off. But those thoughts were just playing in my mind. It is actually safe and we enjoyed the ride up very much. Towards the top, there were some beautiful view of the mountains and also a nice restaurant.

Beautiful mountain top view
Apr 2018 • Couples
The Eckbauerbahn cable car station is at the Olympic stadium n a two-way ticket is 14 euros. You could do a one-way up for 7.5 Euro and walk down and out through the Partnach ppGorge which will take you about 2 hours and you must have good knees as certain descent can be steep. We choose the easy 2-way ticket which was complementary due to the Konigs Card issued by the hotel we stayed in. At 1236 metre high Eckbauer pales compared to it surrounding higher neighbour like Zugspitze at 2962 m or Mt Wank at around 1800m. However the joy is the reward of a 360 degree view of the surrounding mountains. There various treks to Elmauer, Hintergraseck and Graseckbahn. These takes at least 1.5 hours or more. The top of Mt Eckbauer is a flattish grassy knoll with a restaurant and good view of Garmish and it’s surrounding mountains. You could also have a slow quiet meal here. We were blessed with clear sunny skies for good photo shoots. Be prepared to spend at least 2-3 hours here.
