Der Eibsee is a lake in Bayern (Bavaria), Southern Germany, 9 km from Garmisch-Partenkirchen and 100 km from Munich. At an elevation of 973 m, it lies at the base of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain at 2950 m. The area can be reached by train from Munich to Garmisch - they leave roughly every hour, the trip takes 1.5 hours. Buses travel regularly from the train station to the lake.
