Ski jumping in Garmisch-Partenkirchen
A slightly different New Year's celebration
As tradition requires, the busiest moment of the 2018/2019 season in the popular Bavarian winter sports resort of Garmisch-Partenkirchen coincides with the last day of the old year and the first of the new. This is when the world's best ski jumpers face off in the second event of the Four Hills Tournament, better known simply as "New Year's Ski Jumping", cheered on by thousands of fans. Will you be among them? It's one thing to cheer on the "eagles" from the comfort of your armchair at home. It's quite another to be there in person in the company of 25,000 other fans. The atmosphere is indescribable.
125 km od/from Munich Airport
