It is not easy to find a day to visit the Zugspitz because it is so often covered in cloud which means the view is zero. Weh you are there you get a wonderful view over Germany and Austria. Good restaurant for a hot drink....More

Cog train is fun. Views are beautiful. Brats or grilled sausages, pretzels and beer for sale at peak or at summit. Saw tandem parachuters jumping off Zugspitz. Amazing!!!

Visiting the Zugspitze is wonderful anytime of year. I have visited in every weather and season. My favorite in Bavaria is to stay outside of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and visit the very small neighboring towns to experience the culture of Bavaria and less tourists. The views from...More

Breathtaking views on a clear day. Dress warm and don't forget your gloves, hat, and scarf! Check out their webcam before you buy tickets because if it isn't clear, you won't see a thing.

Definitely an impressive site. Superb view of the valley and glacier. The train is a nice way to transport you almost to the summit. But in December 2017 it will be replaced by a new high end cable car. Highly recommended .

The day we went to the Zugspitze was extremely cloudy. Therefore, when we got to the top we didn't get to see the spectacular views. However, I still highly recommend going! The ride up with the train was amazing! You literally go through the mountain....More

A steep rack and pinion ( cog wheel ) electric train into the heart of the mountain terminating about 400 feet below the summit where one transfers into a cable car for the final climb. Fantastic on a sunny day - unfortunately we were shrouded...More

We bought a ticket that allowed us to visit two mountains. Quite expensive but when you look at the infrastructure that is involved it is actually good value. Unfortunately the cable car was out of action as it is being replaced so we had to...More

If you are not sking then buy the non skier ticket. The old cogwheel train takes about 45 minutes. December 2017 the new high speed cable car should be finished and the trip quicker and much more Scenic. You can purchase... More
