Directly at the bottom of the Zugspitze, lies one of the most beautiful lakes in the Bavarian Alps - the Eibsee. Formed more than 3000 years ago by a landslide, the mountain lake offers a variety of sporting activities and excursions.
In summer, the Eibsee invites you to swim in the crystal clear water in addition to various hiking trails. Sporty people can rent pedal boats, rowing boats and stand up paddle boards and explore the lake on their own. Those who prefer it a little quieter can take a round trip on an electric boat - always with the Wetterstein Mountains and Zugspitze in view. You can find all the information here: boat rental
Even in winter, the Eibsee with its picturesque winter landscape is absolutely worth seeing. The Eibsee circular trail is also passable in winter. In January, the lake is often completely frozen which gives the landscape something magical.
The Zugspitze cable car, opened in 2017, is located in the immediate vicinity of the Eibsee and you can go directly to the Zugspitze.
Good to know:
- Camping or spending the night at the Eibsee is prohibited.
- The Eibsee is located in the water protection area
