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...More

The views are breathtaking. Depart from the Garmisch Olympic stadium. When you get to the top, follow the sign to descend through the Partnachklamm, pick another route down, or just go back the way you came. The Partnachklamm is by far the best option, although...More
