Went there only for the scenery.Sking is not my interest, worth visiting, you can have a nice view to surrounding alps. I personally liked the trip by the cable car over the cog, due to that all the trip through a tunnel, and cannot see any thing. Also watch for the time table for both obtions, they are limited you...

I have to admit that the view from the top of Zugspitze was phenomenal. I have been to one other ski resort in Europe (Swiss Alps) and both have been stunning. The journey to get up there was quite a feat, but also part of the experience. The skiing is on the tip of the "glacier" which is all above... More

We were able to enjoy the Zugspitze on a clear day. What a breathtaking view! The lunch choices available were okay and fortunately we remembered to bring some winter gear!

From the moment the tram left the station the views were outstanding. You can spend the whole day at the summit. Enjoy lunch while watching the climbers come up and finish by taking the train down. Be sure to visit the exhibits that explain how the train and trams were built. Well worth the cost.

Amazing views all around. Now in April one side in snowy and the other side is spring green. You can walk also to the Austrian side, great views all over. Great experience for adults and kids.

OK guys, I do not ski, but i just love the Alps. Snow-capped mountains, a restaurant that services all of your needs on top of the world, please go. I wish the cost was cheaper for the day visitors - 48 euros, but such is life. Visit, enjoy the views, at the Zupspitze and then drop down to the lower... More

We have been up mountains in Switzerland, Australia and France but this was our favourite! It was fun going up on the cog train, the tunnel is really amazing when you read it was all made by hand!! The small church just before the top was peaceful and picturesque! At the top it was fun for us even though we... More

We drove to the Eibsee parking lot (free parking) where the lot attendants directed us exactly where to park. From Eibsee, you take the Seilbahn cable car (which is right by the parking lot) and it is only about a 10 minute ride straight to the summit. The cost for 2 people was 83 euros, but definitely worth it, since... More

Journey to the top of the Zugspitz, Germany was wonderful. To some extent the top and the path are similar to Jungfrau of Switzerland. Specially the cost is quite low and family can afford the same here. Top is covered with snow through out the year. One hour train journey to the top from the Garmisch is full of pleasure... More

We had our schedule planned hence this was the only day we could visit Zugspite. The weather was really bad and it was foggy all the way from the bottom to the top. We were hoping that up there, we can pass the fog and view the peaks... but we were greatly disappointed. Will advise everyone to check weather before... More
