Munich Where to Ski Around Munich

Using Munich as your starting point you can easily visit any of these ski resorts.

The nearest ski resort is only about 45 minutes by car from Munich – not many German cities can offer that. If you go a little further, you will also find a paradise for ski enthusiasts in the Austrian Alps. Whether beginner, advanced or professional, everyone will find something to match their skill, making any skier’s dreams come true.


The Spitzingsee can be reached by car from Munich in about 45 minutes. It is one of the smallest of the mentioned ski areas. Here you are still pulled up the mountain for the most part by drag lifts. This area is especially suitable for beginners. Meanwhile, there is also a fun park with kickers, which can be used by both snowboarders and skiers.


Zugspitze is known to be Germany’s highest mountain at 2,962 metres. The skiing area is characterised by the fact that it lies between 2,000 and 2,720 metres, thus half the year of natural snow is a guarantee. And even if the valley sinks into the fog, Zugspitze provides the best weather. Approximately 20km of slopes can be skied during the high season. No need to starve, there are couple of huts, which offer the finest food and beverages.


The Steinplatte is located just over the German border in Austria. Fortunately, you don’t have to pay a motorway toll because you don’t have to use a motorway. Appreciated not only for being easy to reach, the Steinplatte also has beautiful slopes and the most beautiful hut in Austria, the Stallenalm. The old wood bears its warmth and charm and the food always satisfies, making it a great stop for lunch.

Wilder Kaiser

The Wilder Kaiser ski region in Austria is one of the best connected and most modern ski areas in the world. It is not possible to use all slopes in one day. You should also make sure that you are not too far away from the starting point in the afternoon, otherwise it will be difficult to come back. In any case, you do not have to starve. Almost everywhere there are enough restaurants available. To show how big it is, here are some numbers: 90 mountain railways, 284km of slopes and 70 ski huts.
