As the largest ski resort in Germany, the Garmisch-Classic ski area is just under an hour's drive away from Munich and stretches over the snow-covered slopes of the Hausberg, the Kreuzeck and the Alpspitze. The Kandahar track on the Kreuzeck is Germany's steepest downhill track with a gradient of almost 92% and rightly makes Garmisch-Partenkirchen one of the most popular venues for the Alpine Ski World Cup.
Beginners and families will find ideal conditions on the mostly blue and red slopes of the Hausberg. If snow conditions are optimal, the beginners courses for children and adults start right at the foot of the Hausberg, next to the valley station of the Hausberg cable car.
The Kinderland is located directly at the mountain station of the Hausberg cable car and offers everything to make small skiers' hearts beat faster. Once the kids are able to stand safely on their skis, the trained ski instructors will take them over different snow bumps, past various snow figures, through colourful arches and with the magic carpet back to the beginning. Learning to ski at the ski schools in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a real treat!
