We hiked the gorge area. My sister hiked up to small lake. We hiked near Lake Eibsee. The thing is, there are so many hikes near by. Take any gondola up and there are hikes surrounding that area.

We stayed for a week. We did not get bored or run out of activities. I would say that I wouldn't stay for less than 3 days, 4 if you really want to get some hikes in.

Here is one website you might find helpful

Back in 1990, when I lived in Augsburg, I took my kids on a two day hike to the top of the Zugspitze. We stayed in a Hutte overnight. It was in July and the second day we had freezing rain and sleet most of the way. Still, we finished the hike up to the cable car station. I had previously do the hike when the weather was excellent. It was a great hike.
