The highest peak in Germany is the Zugspitze. With its glacier and its panoramic platforms, you will be able to admire sharp summits covered in snow. You can get to the top via a cable car with great views or the cogwheel train. Discover the journey in pictures.
INFO & PLANNING TIPS - Zugspitze
Standing at at 2,962 m (9,718 ft) above sea level, the Zugspitze is at the border of Germany and Austria. A border you can cross on the top platform! This is the most touristic place at Garmisch but I was there almost alone because I chose the option that was getting me there the ealier possible ( See the section how to get there). After my discovery of the surroundings on Wankberg it was nice to get higher and get another perspective.
It is a fantastic destination for a day trip from Munich.
ZUGSPITZE VIEWING PLATFORM
The platform is quite large and runs all around with incredible views in all directions. You can even cross to the Austrian part of it when the Tyrolean cable car arrives.
After the platform I when down to the glacier and enjoyed some time in the snow
until the clouds arrived
