The Eibsee is a crystal clear lake with numerous small islands. The trail leads mostly around the lake and around the lake and in many places the lush vegetation gives the view of the wonderful panorama. Directly on the lake lies the rock group of the "black wall" to the west and the "Wetterstein" massif rises in the south. When the weather is clear you can also see the Zugspitze from the north shore of the lake. Please always follow the instructions and stay on the trails. The route begins at the train station of the Zugspitzbahn in Grainau, which continues from here because of the upcoming gradients as a cog railway. Here, the car can be parked easily. The path initially leads across wide paths through dense forest up to Badersee. This is greenish shimmering in the forest and not only the Seerestaurant invites you to linger. Continue on the sports field and past meadows to the Christelhütte, where the road is crossed. From here, the trail meanders gently up to the Eibsee, its parking lot and the Eibsee Pavillion, where a stop is also worthwhile. This is where the Lake Circumnavigation begins. About a perfectly developed and wide forest path is about the lake. On the south bank there are jetties and pebble beaches where sunbathing like to be bathed. On the shallower north shore, there is a nudist beach and a small island on the Braxensee, to which you can go on small trails to enjoy close to the lake, the view of the Wetterstein massif. Further down comes at the bridge still the submarine and again the kostenplfichtige parking lot. From here you can hike back to the starting point or go back to Grainau with the cog railway for little money.
