The resort of Lenggries is located about 60km from Munich and is easily assessable by car from northern France or by flying into Munich airport with a transfer of around 75 minutes. This ski region is dominated by the Brauneck mountain which ensures there is snow on the slopes from December until after Easter because of it's peak rising to 1700m - together with state of the art snow-making machines.
The area is extremely popular with those from the southern region of Germany but an increasing number of winter sports enthusiasts from other European countries are beginning to realise the advantages of Brauneck as a good skiing area.
German skiing stars such as Hilde Gerg and Martina Ertl are frequent visitors but the area also attracts families and intermediate skiers alike. There are good learner slopes for children and novice skiers - in addition to a slope suitable for world cup events.
There is a gondola system with 90 new cabins as well as 3 chair lifts and no fewer than 14 drag lifts ensuring waiting time is kept to an absolute minimum to the slopes which include one piste which is 6km long.
There are four ski schools in Lenggries which offer tuition for tradition skiers together with snowboarders. The Kid's Park cares for youngsters without the need for parents to be concerned.
If you enjoy going out in the evening, try the 1,6km toboggan run. Alternatively, cross country skiers can enjoy 131km of prepared ski tracks.
Across the Brauneck there are 13 different alpine huts offering food and drink, sunny terraces, together with excellent apres-ski and old-fashioned cosy Bavarian hospitality.
For the cross country skiing enthusiast there are 112km of trails which can be used well into April. For those wanting a break from skiing, there is a 1.5km long toboggan run and horse-drawn sleigh rides.
