For cosy mountain resorts full of character and tradition, the German Alps are second to none. Having successfully avoided the high-rise mega-skiing development that characterise much of France, the villages here are historic and old fashioned, providing a more relaxed and well-paced way to explore the outstanding skiing of the Alps.

The Zugspitze glacier is Germany’s highest mountain at just under 3,000m, and is skiable from the early autumn to the late spring, giving a considerably longer seasons than many of the better known mountains across the border. Take full advantage of this German peak with a stay at the charming, unspoilt Bavarian village of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Skiing in Germany is all about beautiful scenery, small town charm, and some outstanding slopes.
