Magical Christmas gifts from the region

Last minute gift ideas

It’s almost Christmas, and you’re still after the perfect gifts for your loved ones? Don’t worry, the staff at the tourist information centres in the Zugspitz Arena Bayern-Tirol have put together some of the best presents from the region.

Give the gift of an unforgettable, shared experience

Shared experiences make great gifts, and Andreas Wilhelm from the Ehrwald information centre has just the thing: a gift voucher for the Zugspitze. A sunrise trip with breakfast is something to behold, ascending Germany’s highest mountain in a gondola lift to arrive at the panorama summit restaurant. It needn’t be done in the morning, either: you can also enjoy a fondue evening with your loved ones at the summit of the Zugspitze while the sun slowly sets. Go to the Tiroler Zugspitzbahn website to discover more shared experiences you can purchase, such as hiking vouchers or glacier tickets, for example. The only important thing is to make sure you reserve tickets in advance.

Flowers, decorative items, natural soaps

Fragrant gifts always go down well. Stefanie Schuster from the Lermoos information centre likes to give Christmas presents from the ‘Blumen- und Seifenlädele’ in Lermoos. Beautiful bouquets of flowers are always a joy to receive, especially at Christmas, and you’ll also find fashionable handbags and stylish rings here. And if you’re after a real feel-good gift, there are some wonderfully fragrant soaps on offer. Anyone still seeking inspiration for the perfect Christmas gift, then, will be in good hands at the ‘Blumen- und Seifenlädele’.

Tasty goat products from the region

Andreas Wilhelm has yet more ideas for Christmas gifts from the region. He particularly recommends the delicious products you can get at the Ziegenpeterhof, for example. Cheese, milk, meat, and ice cream are all available there, and apart from tasting divine, the products have another benefit: they’re all organic. That’s because the fifty goats here are free to roam outdoors all year round. A gift basket or a voucher make ideal presents.

… Garmisch-Partenkirchen has more Christmas presents for those who just want to indulge

Kathrin Richter from GaPa Tourismus GmbH recommends a Christmas gift with a feel-good factor: the wonderful soap and beer set from the ‘Seifensiederei’ in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Wondering how beer and soap go together? Find out the answer in the GRENZENLOS magazine. What makes these products particularly special: all the soaps are packaged in an eco-friendly way using glass and paper instead of the usual plastic wrapping. A switch to palm oil-free soap is also in the works, but the range of available soaps is already huge: a full selection of artisan soaps, bath chocolates, or personalised soaps with engravings – there’s something here for everyone. All soap products can be ordered online for collection in the store. This way, you get to spoil your loved ones while doing something good for the environment. The eco-friendly soaps are the ideal Christmas gifts directly from the region.
