If you’re staying in this area you sort of have to ride the Zugspitze cable car. For us, it was included in our area cable car z-pass. But it’s not cheap if you pay for the journey as a one-off, and if you do have...More

We took this cable car down from Zugspitze to Eibsee. Kids thoroughly enjoyed it for the entertainment value. Amazing scenery seeing the lake if Eibsee coming into view. Even on a cloudy/misty day it was amazing.

This is a must do and a nice half day outing if you are not skiing up there. You need to pick a clear day to get the best of the views.

After several attempts, we had a clear sunny day. This was definitely worth the time and money. The views were amazing and the engineering marvel to complete this had me in awe. A great afternoon.

Of course, you can easily access the Zugspitze from Garmisch on the German side. But a fun alternative is to take the cable car from the Austrian side, from Ehrwald. On top of the Zugspitze you can cross from Austria into Germany and back. Probably...More
