“A must do when visiting Oberammergau or NATO School.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

You can hike to the top or catch a ride. Once there you can relax, have a beer or eat at the restaurant. A beautiful sight during the winter months and in the warmer months you may view people parasailing. Definitely a must do when visiting Oberammergau or attending the NATO School.

“do not miss this”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

A lovely walk along a clear mountain stream takes you to the gondola station, just near the also lovely outdoor swimming pool. Although small and a little tired the gondola are frequent so you will not have to wait long for your turn. The ride up to the top is only surpassed by the views when you get there. The food in the summit restaurant was nice and wholesome and the draft beer made the afternoon complete. A great way to spend a few hours without over exerting yourself.

“"On a clear day ......"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

It is a pleasant walk following a stream to the Laber cable car. You can take the bus most of thr way also. There is a reduction on the price if you have a guest card. The ride up and down gives great vistas of the area, including the somewhat mysterious, NATO school . At the summit there are splendid 360 views. The summit restaurant serves good food. Apart from one marked route there are no others except the routes down to the valley below. Some catch the cable car up and paraglide down.

“Great Views--Great Hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Be sure to do the Laber on a clear day. The gondola ride is spectacular as are the views from the top. If you are lucky, you will be able to see the Zugspitz. The walk back down is somewhat difficult, but the views make up for the effort expended.

“Tram ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

This is an older tram, but still delivers. The ride is long and slow, and the views tremendous, even on the rainy, overcast day that we made the trip. Don't skip a meal at the top! Anything at altitude is better tasting.
