Just a little over an hour drive from the buzzing capital of Bavaria you will find yourself at this tranquil place surrounded by mountains and green forest to all sides. This gorgeous spot in southern Bavaria is called Lake Eibsee and is situated directly at the foot of Germany’s tallest mountain - the Zugspitze. Because of its idyllic setting and the crystal clear water the lake is known to be one of the most beautiful in all of Germany.
A symbolic wedding ceremony is possible anywhere around the lake - be it at the shore of the perfectly transparent water or in the forest-like patches of woods surrounding the lake. Alternatively, if you are looking for guaranteed privacy for your elopement in Germany, you can get married on the little privately owned Maximilian Island on the Eibsee lake with up to 25 guests (at an extra charge).
Directly at the shore of the lake the Eibsee Hotel offers accommodation, restaurants and - in true Bavarian fashion - a large beer garden to enjoy the view. Eibsee Lake is also one of the cleanest lakes in Bavaria and can be used for swimming and diving.
Keep in mind that the lake is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, especially in the hot summer months. Even though there are some quiet spots around the lake for your ceremony, there might still be the occasional hiker passing by. For a more private ceremony, we recommend eloping to Germany at the Eibsee in autumn or spring or choosing the smaller Frillensee, which is located nearby, for your wedding ceremony.
