I am planning to visit Garmisch-Partenkirchen (GAP) on a day trip this December. If possible, I would like to leave Munich in the morning, spend the day in GAP and continue to Innsbruck in the afternoon. However, to do this I would need to leave my luggage (two mid-sized briefcases) somewhere.

If I cannot leave my luggage in GAP, I would have to leave it in Munich and I would like to avoid travelling back. Is it possible to leave luggage somewhere in GAP?

  • I am a little bit confused: you call Garmisch-Partenkirchen a day trip but you also talk about a hotel there … You also mention checking out from Munich and then going to Innsbruck. Do I understand you correctly that your trip involves you leaving Munich for Innsbruck and that you plan to spend your travel day in GAP? (Also, as a local it is highly unusual for me to see the abbreviation GP; everyone I know abbreviates it GAP ;) .)

  • @Jan: this will be my first time in Germany so please excuse the unusual abbreviation. I will be checking-out of Munich only if I get to put my luggage somewhere in GAP. Otherwise I would have come back to Munich and then next morning travelled to Innsbruck (or Venice...still deciding on that). Based on answer below now I can leave Munich with luggage.

There are lockers at the train station in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, as mentioned here: https://www.bahnhof.de/bahnhof-en/Garmisch-Partenkirchen-3805998 There are no prices on that page, but usually a small locker (hand luggage size) costs 3 - 4 Euros per day, and a big locker for a checked-in luggage size is around 5 - 6 Euros per day. However, as soon as you open it, you have to pay again, so you need to take everything with you that you need during the day.

    I also believe that the lockers take coins (1 euro or 2 euros, iirc) only. Should be the same brand as in all German stations that have lockers.

    I have already seen a newer version of those lockers, which also take cards, but that was only in some of the bigger cities, so most likely for GP it's coins only, as you mentioned.

  • @Dayne If you are from the US, you'll need quite a bit more cash (coins and notes) in Germany than you are used to. You can probably pay for an evening meal in a posh restaurant by card, and almost certainly a hotel, but not a light lunch, and certainly not a sandwich in the bakers. (I was surprised that one of our favourite restaurants didn't take credit cards, only e-cash debit cards.) Oct 30, 2019 at 20:20
  • @MartinBonner: thanks for this. I will plan to carry sufficient cash.
