A Destination For All Seasons If Garmisch is your ideal summer getaway, just think of all the fun you will have in the winter too! As a year-round travel destination, Garmisch-Partenkirchen offers outdoor enthusiasts an array of fun and exciting activities with a stunning backdrop to accompany the thrills. This winter find yourself skiing or snowboarding in the Alps, sledding down a mountain of fresh powder or relaxing in the outdoor hot tub as snow gently drifts to the valley floor.
