This is my second visit to Zugspitz. The first visit was awesome, however I was very disappointed this visit. Not only were the lifts closed, but there is a ton of construction at the summit. I really wish there was better information on how little...More

Whilst in Garmisch-Partenkirchen a trip to the summit of Germanys highest mountain is a must, check the weather before you set off. Getting there is easy using the special train from the local station, transfer to rack and pinion railway and then to the cable...More

Yes, a bit expensive (well pretty expensive), but the engineering marvel that gets you to the top of the mountain is amazing and demonstrates why it may be so expensive. IN any case, weather was absolutely perfect and the views were amazing. Highly recommend.

We did not stay long enough in Grainau so we decided to see Alpspix and arrived there by a cable car. It was an amazing day out with an easy walk down. Worth recommending for all tourist staying very briefly in Bavaria.

Plan this only if good (or relatively good) weather is forecast. Go as early as you can (07:30 or 08:15 departure from Garmisch) as it can get really busy

Zugspitze is accessible from the zugspitzebahn which is adjacent to the station (tunnels under the tracks). Check the timetables and the cameras of the peak before you go but bear in mind the weather at the top can change at a moments notice. At the...More

This was a bit pricey. However, when you take the ride and see what was involved in making it possible it helps one understand a bit better. An actual tunnel was carved into the mountain to gain access for the train. This trip is lengthy...More

Hi there. When we were there, I did no see any snow but if you have a look at some of my photos..I don't think there is any...but I maybe wrong. I think its the season as well. So I hope this helps.
