Eibsee Lake in Bavaria, Germany - BEST Photos

Yes, we have to confess something – we love lakes! In all shapes and colours πŸ™‚ Where are the best lakes in Germany? In Bavaria of course! And the Bavarian Eibsee lake is one of the most beautiful lakes we have ever seen. 

As you can imagine, the Eibsee lake in Germany was also on our bucket list – we were very glad to tick that point on our list.

Eibsee Lake in Bavaria – where is it located?

The lake is located just under 100 km from Munich, which makes it a perfect day trip from the capital of Bavaria.

But we really recommend spending one day in Munich and then at least 2-3 days in this part of Bavaria. That will give you enough time to explore other amazing places around Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

If you only have one day, take the train from Munich to Ga-Pa and then a bus to Eibsee station. You should be able to get there in about 2 hours.

Alternatively, rent a cheap car in Munich and drive yourself to Eibsee.
There are plenty of parking spaces – so no need to worry about that! πŸ˜‰
