Garmisch-Partenkirchen Travel Tip:
Zugspitze Cable Car
Enjoy a breathtaking ride to the top of Germany's highest mountain (almost 10,000 feet). A particularly beautiful way up the mountain is to go up by cogwheel train to the Schneefern glacier, then change to the glacier cable car, which takes you to Germany's highest summit. The visitor is awaited by a breath-taking 360 degree panoramic view over countless peaks in Austria, Italy, Switzerland and of course Germany.
After soaking in the view you can take the Eibsee cable car, with wonderful views of the Eibsee, back down into the valley. At the Eibsee you rejoin the cogwheel train to travel back to Grainau or Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Of course you can make this round trip in the opposite direction.
There is a restaurant at the top and many nearby hiking trails during summer; winter of course leads to skiing and snowboarding.
Address: Olympiastraße 27, D-82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen
