Winter Skiing in Germany

Centrally positioned in Europe, a German ski holiday by car hire is within easy reach.  Although we hear a lot about the newly developed ski villages in Austria, Germany's ski resorts have held a long appeal for their charming quality and friendly hospitality.  Set apart for its Glacier skiing and World Cup races, Germany is also the home of quiet mountain hideaways and resorts as chic and apres as they come.  

cheap car hire, Germany

Skiing terrain in Germany by car rental ranges from the Alps to the Black Forest; from speedy downhill runs to scenic cross-country skiing tours.  The most famous resorts might not be what you are looking for, as one thing many people love about German resorts is their smaller, more informal feel.  The winter ski season here begins in December and lasts roughly until March.


Held as the top ski resort in the country, Garmisch is the home of Germany's highest mountain and boasts in an astounding 118 km of downhill runs ranging all difficulty levels.  It is also the home of Germany's only downhill run with a "World Cup Licence," the world famous Kandahar.  Garmisch-Partenkirchen can easily be reached by car rental from Munich Airport.

Black Forest

Outside of the Alps the Black Forest is Germany's largest ski resort.  Although Garmisch-Partenkirchen claims to be the oldest, the Black Forest is home to Germany's oldest ski club as well as the first ski tow ever built.  Stretching across from the famous Baden Baden spa to the border of Switzerland, the Black Forest is 4,600 square miles with more than 155 miles of downhill slopes.  You can reach the Black Forest by airport car hire in Frankfurt, Germany.
