You are already a guest in Garmisch-Partenkirchen? Then start your visit of the Partnach Gorge now in town, on foot or with a bicycle. Beautiful hiking and cycling routes to the Skistadion are available alongside the railway line Grainau – Garmisch as well as from the station via the Partnachuferweg. From the Ludwigstraße too, after crossing the Mittenwalderstraße, you can walk, keeping always straight, via the Stiefelfeldfussweg on to the Skistadion. Allow on foot approximately 25 – 30 minutes. More comfortable is a drive with the horse-drawn carriage from the Skistadion to the Gorge.
Please, use your bicycle on the cycling routes. At the ticket booth of the Gorge you find a parking place for bicycles.
Directly at the Skistadion (Olympia-Skistadion, Karl- und-Martin-Neuner-Platz 1, 82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen) charging posts are available.
The charging posts in Garmisch-Partenkirchen have each a Schuko and a type 2 connector and are therefore suitable for all common electric vehicles. The charging stations are designated with a green “e” in the public car-park routing system. The parking places belonging to the charging stations are designated by signs and may only be occupied by electric or plug-in-hybrid-vehicles, observing the indicated maximum parking time.
The parking places belonging to the charging stations are shown by corresponding signposting and can exclusively be occupied by electric or plug-in-hybrid-vehicles observing the indicated maximum parking time and during the charging process.
The parking during the charging process is gratis, i.e. it is not necessary to buy a parking ticket.
Under https://www.ladenetz.de/de/ you will obtain all the information for the use of charging posts.
The new backend system of LADENETZ integrates the e-charging posts owned by the local utility companies into a trans-regional charging post network (municipal utility association). Roaming partners are amongst others TNM, Has-to-be, etc.
The way to the charging stations can be found via the existing car-park routing system or by using the APP.
Independently of charging processes, purely electric and plug-in-hybrid vehicles with e-number plates can be parked free of charge on almost all public parking places in the local area within the framework of the indicated maximum parking time.
Excluded from this regulation are the following car parks/parking garages:
- Car park at the station in front of the post office (managed by the DB)
- Parking garage in the GEP-shopping centre
- Underground garage in the Klammstraße
- Underground garage at the casino Garmisch-Partenkirchen
- underground garage in the Badgasse.
In the case of vehicles without e-number plates our parking permission should be lying in the vehicle clearly visible for a quick and unequivocal recognition by the traffic control. This permission can be downloaded here and completed by yourself: http://www.e-gap.de/kostenlos-parken/.
In all cases the following will apply: Additionally, the parking disk must always be laid out clearly visible in the vehicle, as the maximum parking time, which applies to almost all parking areas, must not be exceeded.
The Skistadion can be reached from the station with the local bus lines 1 and 2. From there you continue on foot on a level street for approximately 25 minutes or with the horse-drawn carriage into the Wildenau for the Gorge entrance.
TIP: The bus ride is by the way free of charge with the Zuspitz Arena Bayern-Tirol Card!
You can find the exact bus timetable here. (in German)
