“Beautiful gorge walk. Take a torch or use your phone light for the darker parts. It's always pretty cold in the gorge and wet from the running river so wear appropriate clothing. There is an alm hut further up to which you can eat at. 5 EURO entry. A must see!”

Natural Feature
“One of my favourite places in the world. You can hire a pedal boat or row boat or take the guided boat trip around the lake. Hire a SUP board in town and paddle around the lake too. The walk around the lake is around 7km's and its beautiful. Bring your swimsuit and swim at the lake. Selfservice cafe and Pavillion restaurant on site. Parking EUR 5. Eibsee bus runs every 30min during summer and on the hour the rest of the year. ”

Italian Restaurant

“I'm a local at Colosseo. It's great! They had to expand because they are so busy. Outdoor terrace available too. The atmosphere is very social and busy, (not romantic), however, the food is excellent. They also do deliveries! The best pizza in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Try the grilled prawns or their baguette pizza's. ”
