When we go to Garmisch we like to take a drive into the neighboring towns in Germany and in Austria.  Lermoos is a super cute little town in Austria about 15 min. away.  Ettal has a great monastery and a delish restaurant right across the street..get the Käsespätzle..it's amazing!  Mittenwald is a beautiful town, probably my favorite, and has a really good bierhaus.  SO YUMMY!  Walk around the center of town and admire the homes, with their beautifully painted scenes.

I've ridden the gondola up the Zugspitz twice now.  So worth the $$!  And don't take the train, the gondola is much more fun although it is a bit scary.  But I made it, so that's saying a lot.  Once on top, there is of course, a beer garden!  Enjoy a beer and some apple cake and take in the scenery.  You can even cross over to the top of the Austrian side in Tyrol.

The gorge is a must do as well and you're not far at all from Linderhof.  It's about a 90 min. ride to Neuschwanstein Castle.

Dachau is not a far drive from Garmisch.  I'd recommend a visit if you're interested in that.  Very sobering and makes for an emotionally draining day.
