“Sunny at 2960m”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

If it's good weather, this is a great trip to make, even though it's a little costly. There is plenty to see and a light snack in the restaurant while looking at the view is recommended. Take the cable car up, and on the way down, the cable car to the ski area then the train. The latter is a slow trip, but there is an interesting small film to watch on the train, showing how the lookout was built. A good way to fill in a few hours, followed by a walk around part of the lake.

“Top of Germany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

A must do trip up the mountain - pick a clear day and wear/take some warm clothing as very chilly and windy at the top! Try taking the cog wheel train up from Garmisch and the cable car down to Elbsee where there's a beautiful lake to walk around before continuing down by the cogwheel train.

“What an experience!!!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

At 49.50 Euros per person it seems expensive but believe me it is well worth the money.
Round trip from Garmisch inludes: Cogwheel train from/to the centre of Garmisch - Glacier Cable Car - and Cable car to Eibsee all include
PLUS the fantastic views and facilities at the top of Zugspitz make it a day to remember,,,,,
