Create an itinerary including Eibsee
At the base of Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain, you'll find Eibsee. A peaceful lake, it is enjoyable year-round. In warm weather, take a dip in the water or rent a paddleboat. If you plan to swim, bring water shoes to protect your feet from the rocky beaches. You also can take a stroll on the lakeside path, or hike farther up the mountain for views of the lake below. In winter, ride the gondola up the mountain to view the magical frozen landscape. In the colder season, remember to bring any snacks or drinks with you, as the food stands and restaurants are open usually only in the warmer months. To visit Eibsee and get the most from your holiday in Grainau, create itinerary details personal to you using our Grainau online trip itinerary maker.

  • This is a beautiful lake to visit. Just below the cable car station is a lovely 2 hour walk around it's perimeter. Lots of benches along the way to sit and gaze at the great views. You can hire boats....  more

  • Beautiful place with stunning views. You can comfortably hike around the lake in a couple of hours! We went in winter when most of the lake was frozen but was still a sight to behold!
  • The most beautiful lake I have ever seen in mountains. I can compare its turquisecolour of waters to Plitvice Lakes. The walk around the lake took over 3 hours for our group 4 to 47 years old people but the omly reason "why so long" is we had to stop every few meters to make a picture or check the sound of bouncing pebble by dropping it to frozen lake. We had big fun admiring the views and brathing clean air a specially it was easy to walk there - almost all the time flat terrain. Even people with baby carts were faster than us ;)
