Owner description: At nearly 10,000 feet, Germany's highest peak is a popular ski area during the winter and a challenging hiking trail during the rest of the year.

As of this writing they are rebuilding the gondola, so the only way up is the train. So well worth it, even though it was more than we were expecting. The views are perfect. I want to go back in the winter. June was great!!

The story is the Austrian side of the summit is as high as the German side. How? Because Austrian elevation is from the Mediterranean Sea which is lower than the Baltic.

Great views, several nice picnic areas. And fun for kids too. Just hope for good weather.

Incredible views, amazing ride up the cable car. Loved the sledding. And good food at restaurant. Make sure you spend time up there - lots to do!

Views from the top are great. The gondola was being repaired so we went up by cogwheel train. The gondola would have offered more exciting views. Spent 3 hours on the top. Watched birds, gliders, and a construction project. Worth the price. The Austrian pavilion and the German pavilion are connected so that you have access to all views.

You take a train, then a tram car to the top of Zugspitze. The view from there is awesome. You can see for miles, and also hike if you want to. It is the highest mountain in Germany, Austria is on the other side.
