The view from the top of the Zugspitze is beautiful on a clear day. The cable car ride is also very impressive. I didn't love the cog-wheeled train, you're mainly in a tunnel so there isn't much of a view and it is very slow. Tickets too the top are also pretty expensive (~40-45€ I think). Hiking the mountain is... More

You only live once so don't miss this wonderful place when in Germany. I was in Münich only for 2 days and this was the highlight of my tour. Went for a day tour to Zugspitze. One whole day would be fine - just make sure to catch the earliest train from Münich's central station (Hauptbanhof) going to Garmisch-P (last... More

The highest peak of Germany, is simply beautiful. The best way to reach the top is cable car. Recommend to carry a pair of sunglasses.

Tallest peak of Germany!! Train to the mountain was so badly crowded, and the journey was in fact beautiful but not for a long time, as it took 1hr 30mins and many fell asleep. Was amazed by the view I had, the snow capped mountains looked like a painting got life. So many skiers at one place. There are few... More

On a sunny day when there's not too much wind this was beautiful. It didn't seem too crowded although there were actually many skiers out enjoying the gorgeous weather. Decent variety of difficulty, although no black runs, but a bit of off piste is available. The big negative is the journey time up there and back. Took two hours from... More

The train ride and two cable cars to the top of the Zugspitze were memorable on their own, but the view from the highest peak in Germany is something I will never forget. It was unlike anything I have ever seen and is something I am so glad I had the chance to experience.

The views are gorgeous, although the tickets were a bit expensive (because you cross the border into Austria for a brief moment). Garmisch is also a nice little town to walk around in and enjoy the beautiful surrounding mountains. Dress warmly!
