Expert's Opinion

"The standout attraction of the Zugspitz Arena is variety - from glacier skiing on the Zugspitz itself to tree-lined intermediate skiing in Berwang and Ehrwald - there are a number of distinct and different areas to ski and explore. Nearby lakes and a hugely popular local golf course add a year-round appeal and the cross-border ski area and close proximity to the ski resorts of Germany's Bavarian Alps will give holiday-makers plenty of skiing to choose from year after year." - Rob Keddy

The Village

The ski pistes in the Zugspitze Arena are spread across a number of different sectors both sides of the border with access to the pistes from a number pleasant, Austrian villages.

Ehrwald (1000m)  and Lermoos (1004m) are the largest and most centrally located villages in this ski area, both sitting on the flat valley floor between the Zugspitz and Grubistein mountains. Lermoos is compact with a range of good family-friendly hotels while Ehrwald is a little larger and the atmosphere is livelier. Both these villages are quite traditional and offer a good access point to the varied local skiing and summer activities that include the popular Zugspitze-Tirol golf club.

Other villages in the area include Biberwier (990m), Bichlbach (1080m), Berwang (1340m) and Heiterwang (995m). Heiterwang is a small lakeside village a short bus ride from the slopes while Berwang and Bichlbach sit either side of a 36km sector of skiing. Berwang is especially charming with lifts rising on both sides, slopes descending right to the village and beautiful snowy scenery.
