We decided to venture away from Amsterdam this Christmas and spend time in Germany in a Town called Grainau. Its a relatively small town with about 3,000 people and a huge US/German Military Garrison and training site. The Garrison wasn’t the attraction though, we went there for the nature, especially the lakes and forest. The area also features the highest point of Germany, the Zugspitze. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves!
Lake Eibsee. A beautiful lake at the base of Zugspitze. We arrived here on the day it just snowed and the lake was still not yet frozen. This created some stunning conditions for images.
Near Eibsee is the Zugspitze. It’s the tallest point of Germany. This did not disappoint with some amazing views!
Overall we loved the area, a perfect blend of nature and seasons. We cannot wait to come back in summer.
