It is a romantic train ride between Garmisch and Kempten (via Reutte in Austria) through picturesque Alpine valleys and cute towns. The Neuschwanstein Castle, at Füssen, is also along this stretch. Bayern Ticket covers this route. Lindau, at Lake Constance (Bodensee), is around 1:15 hours from Kempten by regional trains.
Garmisch-Partenkirchen boasts some of the best skiing in Germany. Located at the base of the country's tallest mountain, year round glacial snow is guaranteed. The "Happy Ski Pass" can be purchased for use of four ski areas in that area in both Austria and Germany: Seefeld(Seefeld is currently(2012) off the list - but this seems to change from season to season so best to check), Mittenwald, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the region "Tiroler Zugspitz Arena". The pass starts at 88 € and offers 3 to 21 days of skiing, 4 of 6 days and 5 of 10.
