ZUGSPITZ ULTRA TRAIL 2022: REGISTRATIONS OPEN
The Zugspitz Ultra Trail is a race that in its different modalities, from 106 km to 25 km, goes around completely or in different parts the Massif of the Zugspitze, the highest peak in Germany with 2962 meters above sea level and which at its summit shares a border with Austria. The race starts in Grainau, a very picturesque village in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district.
GARMICSCH-PATENKIRCHEN, MECCA OF MOUNTAINEERING AND SKIING IN GERMANY.
The city of Garmisch-Patenkirchen represents in Germany what Chamonix does to France. That means: skiing in all its forms, winter sports, climbing, mountaineering and of course trail running. Perhaps many of our readers have already heard the city’s name due to the ski jumping competition held every January 1st at the Olympic Stadium where the Winter Olympics were hosted in 1936.
Garmisch-Partenkirchen is actually made up of two cities that joined in 1935. Since then, they offer to all of those who love nature and mountain life style countless opportunities. In winter it is one of the most visited ski resorts in Germany and not only by Germans, but also by Austrian, Swiss or even the Italian neighbours. In summer it transforms with everything it can be imagine in the mountains: walks, hiking, kayaking, climbing, via ferrata and much more.
Garmisch’s Ski Resort is also very famous among the worldwide ski lovers. Its ski slopes are divided into three large areas: The first, a forester area that goes from 1800 m down to the outskirts of Garmisch and offers large slopes, where you can also find the mythical Kandahar World Cup slope.
The second ski area starts at about 1900 m and goes up to 2200 m where once there was a glacier.
The third area, the Glacier area, covers about 30 km from 2200 m directly on the Zugspitze glacier. That area can be reached through one of the fastest gondolas in Europe or, from Garmisch itself via a train that is dug on the mountain and climbs up to 2600 meters high.
Below, you can see the spectacular ski map of this resort in the heart of the Bavarian Alps.
