On the trail of the Ice Age in the Massiger Gorge at Lake Starnberg.

Family hike around the picturesque Eibsee!

With the Zugspitze and a great mountain panorama in view as well as the turquoise-blue water, holiday feelings arise directly at the Eibsee. It is not for nothing that the Eibsee is also called the Maldives in Bavaria. The best way to start a hike with children around Lake Eibsee is from the Zugspitze cable car parking lot. From there, follow the signs to the lake, where the tour begins. Many travel guides recommend walking counterclockwise around the lake, as the view of the Zugspitze is particularly magnificent. We decided to go the other way so that we could walk in the warm midday sun for a long time. Almost the entire route you have the highest mountain in Germany in view. No matter which side you start from.

The hike is suitable for children, only runs along the road for a bit in the lower part and has a doable length of one hour. The Schliersbergalm is the ideal driver. Once you’ve reached the top, it’s pure Eldorado for kids. Not only does the Schliersbergalm have a great playground at the edge of the forest, where the slide goes between the trees. There are also several large children’s trampolines with a wonderful panorama over the Schliersee. There’s also the Alpenexpress. It’s great fun, especially for the kids.
