Eibsee is a lake in Bavaria, Germany, 9 km southwest of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and roughly 100 km southwest of Munich. It is 973.28 metres (3,193.2 ft) above sea-level and its surface area is 177.4 hectares (438 acres). It lies at the base of the Zugspitze (2,950 metres (9,680 ft) above sea level), Germany's highest mountain.

As of May 2010, trains from Munich to Garmisch-Partenkirchen leave roughly once an hour and the trip takes about an hour and a half.[1] Buses travel regularly from the train station in Garmisch-Partenkirchen to Eibsee.[2] A valid train ticket can often be used to ride the bus.[3]
