Located about a ten minute from Garmisch, Eibsee is a beautiful lake well worth the drive. Take highway 23 from Garmisch (west) till you see the signs for Eibsee, a 20 minute drive.
Taken in the German alps after an early Spring snowstorm this is the Eibsee Lake located at the base of the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain. We had been in the area for two days and it had rained just about the entire time. We were going to leave the third day when we awoke to a winter wonderland in April!
