We went up to Alpspitz on the same day after visiting Zugspitze, we had no luck at Zugspitze as too cloudy and we were hoping we could get a nice view at Alpspitz. It would be much cheaper to buy a value tickets for both mountains if you plan to visit both. We could still see at half way through... More

Went up the Kreuzeckbahn (to 1651m), walked up a bit (to 2050m) and came back down the Alpspitzbahn (which ends up about 200 metres from the Kreuzeckbahn station). This is yet another lovely ride / walk on highish hills - a bit more open than some, through interesting limestone formations and ending up at a pair of cantilevered viewing platforms... More

To go here you'll need to pay 25 Euro per person (no student discounts, unfortunately) for the cable car line called Alpspitzbahn (park you car for free in Landeplatz). This will get you just next AlpspiX platform (Osterfelderkopf station). From here you have quite a lot of choices: - Go up the Alpspitze summit. - Chill in the beer garden,... More

If you don't wish to spend the $48 euros to go to the highest point in Germany - about 10,000 feet - take the next step and go to the Alpspitz. It is lower in height and cheaper in cost. But it is also quite exciting. They have a lookout - a metal walk that stretches over the mountain. Not... More

Even during the summer months this area holds something for everyone. The Alpine Flora and Fauna is fascinating and the ariel platform is inspiring, the glass bottom allows an interesting view into the void.

We chose to go to Alpspitz instead of Zugspitz because it was half the price and it was a bit cloudy on the higher peak. We did not feel deprived at all on the Alpspitz trip though. There are three gondolas with a short hike between two of them. Make sure you get a map though it isn't difficult to... More
