Although Germany doesn't have the huge ski areas of France or Austria, it does have decent ski areas with picturesque villages and panoramic views of the Bavarian Alps. In addition to the slopes, many of these ski areas also offer tobogganing, ice skating, curling and much more. From the Arber to the Feldberg, here are the 10 best ski areas in Germany.


The Arber is the perfect place to teach your children to ski. The Arber has a large ArBär children's area with four magic carpets on which children can learn to ski. There is also the Children's World Cup, a parallel slalom slope where children can compete against each other. For adults and children there is a family cross park with jumps and boxes, which helps beginners to make quick progress. In high season the slopes can get quite crowded as there are only five lifts and a total of eight runs.


If you are looking for a family-friendly ski area with a fun park, free parking, winter hiking trails and tobogganing opportunities, then you should visit the Alpsee-Grünten ski area. With only five lifts, it's not the largest ski area in Germany, but it offers a decent descent altitude of 760 m and a 4.5 km long piste. The panoramic views of the surrounding slopes and the double chairlift contribute to its popularity. There is also the longest tobogganing season in Germany, which is possible all year round.


If you want to ski on the slopes where champions have made history, then go to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This ski resort is about an hour south of Munich and was the site of the 1936 Winter Olympics. Even today, World Cup ski competitions still take place here every year. With 40 kilometers of pistes spanning three mountains and lifts leading to the Zugspitze on 2.962 m, it is definitely one of the most important ski areas in Germany. With the Top Snow Card you can use Garmisch and eight other ski areas in the region.

4.Winklmoosalm stone slab

The Winklmoosalm-Steinplatte (try saying that three times quickly!) combines two ski areas and is located in the middle of the Chiemgau Alps, right on the border with Austria. Like Garmisch, Winklmoosalm-Steinplatte is just an hour from Munich and offers 16 slopes, 50 km of skiing and an altitude difference of 870 m. The ski area regularly upgrades its lift system to make it faster and more efficient, meaning more time for you to ski. Free parking is a real bonus here. At the end of the day, don't forget to stop at the Almstueberl and eat a homemade cake.


With 130 kilometers of slopes, the southern Bavarian ski area Oberstdorf connects seven mountain peaks that extend into Austria. Each mountain has its own character - there is a family-friendly atmosphere at Söllereck, while powder hunters should head for the summit of the Walmendingerhorn. There are also 70 km of cross-country ski trails, including a World Cup trail. Non-skiers will enjoy the extensive winter hiking trails in Oberstdorf - and perhaps also a night in the IgluLodge.


The Oberjoch Bad Hindelang is one of the 10 highest ski areas in Germany. The highest passable point is at 1.559 m, which may seem low compared to France or Switzerland, but offers good skiing for locals, especially in January and February. With 32 kilometers of slopes, three toboggan runs and a mini snow park for the little ones, Oberjoch offers plenty of entertainment for children. Horse-drawn carriages even drive through the snow here. Come back in the summer and watch the golden eagles soar overhead.

7.Piston caliper

Oberammergau is a picturesque place known for its wood carvings and the Oberammergau Passion Play. In the winter season, the Kolbensattel ski area turns into a winter paradise with nine lifts and 8 km of slopes for beginners and advanced skiers; 90% of the slopes are easy and blue. There is also a sizable park with three lines, which will also be open on Friday evenings from January. For ski tourers there is a separate ski tour route that begins at the Kolbensattel hut. It is an easy climb of 400 meters, perfect for practicing your turns.


Mittenwald, known for its colorful houses and the history of violin making, is also home to the Alpenwelt-Karwendel ski area, which is made up of Kranzberg, Wallgau and Krün. The quaint Bavarian mountain huts overlooking the breathtaking views make this a truly picturesque ski resort. The Barmseelift near Krün is popular with beginners and children, while advanced skiers can enjoy Germany's longest ski route, the Dammkar. The carnival, which takes place every January, provides additional fun.


Skiing in Germany has its roots in Feldberg. Here, at the highest point in the Black Forest, on the 20th. The first German ski club was founded in November 1892. With 28 lifts and 36 slopes, the Feldberg attracts skiers and snowboarders from all over the region. The snow park has the longest jibline in Germany, and recently there is a children's piste rally, similar to a boardercross course but with bumps, benches and foam hands that you can hit to make noise. We recommend staying overnight at the Feldberger Hof, as you can access the slopes directly from there.

10. Berchtesgadener Land

Skiing and snowboarding in the Bavarian Alps. There are 5 different ski areas in Berchtesgadener Land, which are located on the Austrian border. If you are looking for a base in the region, choose the romantic village of Schönau am Königsee. A lift takes you directly to Jenner - the largest ski resort in the region - with a range of restaurants and après-ski options to enjoy after skiing. With one ski pass you have access to 30 ski lifts and over 40 km of groomed slopes.

In addition to skiing and snowboarding, you can also explore the Berchtesgaden National Park, which is beautiful even in winter. Dress warmly and take a trip to Lake Königsee, followed by a hike to a nearby cave nicknamed the Ice Chapel. The unreal ice patterns in the cave are the result of a collapsed glacier.
