SKIING IN GERMANY AND A TASTE OF BAVARIAN CHARM
The “travel lane” between Singapore and Germany has opened up the opportunity to enjoy the outdoor winter activities of Germany. For an alpine experience, the Bavarian Alps with its many ski resorts has much to offer.
Perhaps the best-renowned among its ski resorts is Garmisch-Partenkirchen (typically referred to as “GaPa”) in the Zugspitz Region of Upper Bavaria – the site of the 1936 Winter Olympics and the annual World Cup ski competitions. With 40km of ski slopes and 18 lifts, the winter sports area offers everything from family-friendly slopes to the famous Kandahar black slope. Germany’s highest mountain, Zugspitze, with 20km of slopes, is a magnet for both skiers and snowboarders. (The ride up to, and the views from, the summit of Zugspitze are nothing short of breathtaking!)
Other popular ski resorts in Upper Bavaria include Oberstdorf and Oberjoch both of which are also popular with non-skiers, thanks to their extensive hiking trails. With 130km of slopes in 6 different ski resorts including the family-friendly Sollereck and the Nebelhorn with Germany’s longest valley run of 7.5km, Oberstdorf offers a huge range of activities for both skiers and snowboarders. Oberjoch is Germany’s highest ski village and the Oberjoch ski area – with its 33km of slopes, huge children’s snow area of 20,000m² and extensive skiing trails – has in fact been recognized by the German Ski Association as the best family ski area in the German Alps.
Beyond its famous alps, Bavaria has so much more to offer – whether in winter or outside of it. To name but a few highly-compelling destinations/attractions:
1. Munich – The capital of Bavaria famous for its annual Oktoberfest celebration and its beer halls, including the famed Hofbräuhaus, founded in 1589. In the days leading up to Christmas, the entire old town of Munich – with its iconic neo-Gothic town hall and extravagant clock – is one huge Christmas Market!
2. Nuremberg – Home to Germany’s most famous Christmas Market and also Germany’s most famous Renaissance artist Albrecht Durer, Nuremberg has a sizeable old town with cobblestone streets and structures reminiscent of its rich medieval and Renaissance past.
3. Rothenburg ob der Tauber – A medieval gem and probably the best preserved medieval town in the whole of Germany. In winter, Rothenburg’s famous Christmas Market transforms the town into an idyllic winter wonderland. Rothenburg is home to the famous Käthe Wohlfahrt “Christmas Village”.
4. Bamberg – One of Europe’s largest old towns untouched by WW2 bombings and replete with structures reminding any visitor of its rich heritage from medieval times, the highly-picturesque town of Bamberg is certainly deserving of its recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For those who love beers, Bamberg’s world-famous smoked beer (“rauchbier”) is not to be missed.
Below is a proposed travel itinerary for consideration for the 2021/22 winter season. The itinerary can of course be revised with respect to duration, destinations and particular attractions.
