Whilst we really had a fat time up there I was somewhat disappointed to have paid full price. Massive constructions going on everywhere with tools and machinery lying around, the place looked a mess and we had a hard time finding our way around due to the lack of clear signage.. To top it off - after having forked up... More

Went up to the peak on a bright sunny day. Queue was very long while waiting for the Gondola at Elbsee. The view from the top was absolutely amazing, looking at other peaks across Austria, Swiss and Italy! The food at the restaurant have lots of variety, price was reasonable despite it was a touristy place. Do get a seat... More

We took the lift from the Elbsee village. Very long cue and a waiting time of 45 minutes to enter the teleferique. Once inside, you enjoy a magnificent ride directly to the top of the mountain at almost 3.000 m. At the top you can see four countries and almost 1000 picks of the alps. Had a hot chocolate at...

I have been here twice now. The views are incredible, but make sure you check the weather at the top of the mountain before going. Our hotel attendant told us it was cloudy up there. From the ground it looked great, nice and sunny, so we went. That was a mistake. It was so cloudy at the very top that... More

The gondola takes you up to the highest peak in Germany, super scenic 10/15 minute ride up. However, line to buy tickets and wait for the gondola was super long - took us about 30/40 minutes. The view from the peak is great, even have a restaurant/bar/souvenir shop

Go. Pack in enough time to enjoy yourself on the mountain. Go in the morning if able. Take time to have lunch or a drink on the Austrian side and enjoy the ski area on the lower slope.

Tried both ways of traveling, by train and cable car, I would recommend cablecar from Eibsee to the top.

We took the cogwheel up and cable car down. For 40euro it was worth every penny. The views are spectacular and to be within the alps and see the other peaks from the top was spectacular. Skiers' paradise for sure. But for us non skiers it was equally thrilling. And had the best soup at a cafe at the top!

Beautiful views, a good meal at the top and good value for money. Cog train to the top, cable car to the very top and then stop off at Lake Eibsee on the way back.
