Lake Eibsee

On Sunday my host family took me to Lake Eibsee.

This lake sits at the foot of the Zugspitze- Germany's highest mountain,
and has a surface elevation of almost 1000m.

The drive there and the lake itself gave me a taste of Bavaria,
made me want more,
and reminded me why I chose this area as my home for the next year...

Snow covered mountains,
lush, green forests,
and crystal clear lakes-
(at least the part that isn't covered in snow).

I can't wait to return in the summer time-
apparently the water is bright turquoise.











Have you been to Germany?
What is your favorite city?
Pin It!

Looks dreamy! I have not spent any real time in Germany (just one night in a hotel as I awaited my connecting flight out the next day). But I really want to!

You LIVE here you lucky lady!

Make sure you take the cable car up to the top of the Zugspitze this summer - it's absolutely incredible.

Also, so far: your au pair family > my au pair family by about 1000%. Again, lucky lady :)

Omigosh! I've been here!! :) Seriously, you have me so Germany-sick. We went there in October'ish and I have pics of it where the water looks like a crystal clear mirror. It's amazing. These pics you took are incredible.

I love to travel but for some reason Germany has never been one of those places I really yearned to go.

These pictures are amazing though and I imagine in the spring/summer it will be amazing there !

Stephanie said...

E said...

Oh how amazing! Thank you for sharing the gorgeous photos.
I'm sure it's sights like these and day-trips like this, that will continually remind you why you chose to go do what you're doing.
Looking forward to more!
And no, I haven't even been to Germany!

Gorgeous! My favorite city isn't a hard choice (I've only really visited one); it has to be Berlin! It is such a fun city with so much history. If you ever go, I know the name of a great hostel.
