Our stop turned into primarily a WC stop, but a few Olympic sports buffs were truly enamored with everything visible, especially the ski jump track. It is rather awesome to see and it is well maintained for a relic of 1936 and 1968.

Not much to do, but we were glad to make a brief visit. The ski jump was impressive, and the place has a historic feel. Take a look at my photo--it pretty much conveys the whole scene.

For us this was a must see, a part of history that quite frankly the Olympic movement should be ashamed of. If you aren't that into history or sport it probably isn't that interesting.

This is a marvellous and iconic landmark in Garmisch. You feel as though you are transported back through time as you enter the arena through the massive, square pillars. There are guided tours of the ski jumps along with historic information and there are info...More

The tour was very informative and good fun, the guide was very knowledgeable. Tour itself was in German, not sure if it is offered in English as well. The last bit all the way up the Ski Jump might not be for you if you...More
