  The wheels on the bus go round & round

For anyone staying in Garmisch the hotel will provide a Kurcard which gives free travel on the local green buses. There is a limited service that has two routes that cross the town. Lines 1&2 cover the route from the Kainzenbad (Swimming Pool), Hospital & Ski Stadium in the south east to the Kreuzeck cable car in the South west via a cirular route around the town. Note that some buses follow this route but only goes as far as Brietenau. Lines 4&5 provide a circular route to Farchant in the north. Some of these buses do a clockwise route whilst the others go anti- clockwise. Check to see which one is best for your journey to avoid an unnecessary trip around town. Services are approximately half hourly and all buses go to the railway station and Marienplatz. The buses run all day but stop around 2130-2200. If you are just a day visitor the fare is 1Euro. It's a good way of getting to the outskirts of town or getting back into town if your walks end up by the routes.
A separate bus route is provided by the blue Eibsee bus but this is not subject to free travel and costs about 4 Euros to get to Eibsee for the Zugspitze cable car or a walk around the lake. The service is hourly and takes about 30 minutes. The last bus back is about 2030.
