Cross channel ferries close to excellent ski resort02.12.2009
People taking cross channel ferries could continue their journey into Germany and visit a ski resort which has runs and slopes that suit people of all capabilities, according to one newspaper.
The Times visited Garmisch-Partenkirchen and reported that the resort is a hidden gem which is very popular with Germans and will be the venue for the next Alpine World Ski Championships in 2011.
It stated: "What the skiing lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. The highlight lies on the north face of the Kreuzeck, where you"ll find the Kandahar - one of the steepest and most technical downhill runs on the World Cup circuit."
The newspaper added that visitors can also have the chance to have a go on the Olympia course which was the downhill run at the 1936 Winter Olympics.
Music fans visiting Germany will also be able to see The Pet Shop Boys, who are playing three gigs in the country.
