“Great view!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Nice gondola ride to the top and easy walk/hike to the observation platform. Phenomenal photo ops of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Edelweiss resort. Can't wait to come back and ski this mountain!

“Superb mountain walking”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Fantastic days walking on the Alpspitze summit near Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Took the cable car from Kreuzeck-Alpspitz station on the Zugsoitzbahn to the Kreuzeck summit station Then walked across to the Hochalm Gasthhof area and then up to the Ostfelderkopf summit station. Had beers on the terrace in glorious sunshine with snow on the peaks around us. Fantastic views from the AlpspiX viewing platform over the valley below - Eibsee , Grainau, Garmisch- Partenkirchen - and surrounding mountains. Then walked back down the staggeringly steep mountainside paths to the Hoellentalangerhuette and through the Hoellental gorge back to Grainau. 16km distance and about seven and a half hours in total including numerous photo and refreshment stops but an amazing day out

“Beautiful Views and Excellent Hiking”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Highly recommend buying the Garmisch Classic ticket ($32 at Eidelweiss Lodge) and taking the Alpspitzbahn gondola to the top. This covers the up and down lifts with several options on which lifts to take. Even if you are not able to hike, it can be very enjoyable. he views of the valley and the Alpspitz is spectacular. You can easily spend a full day enjoying the scenery and hiking. We hiked down to the Hochalm lift (about 30 to 45 min depending on stops) and then had a fantastic lunch at the outdoor restaurant there. The food was great (ham loaf with fried egg on top) and not overpriced for the location. Very much enjoyed sitting outside and viewing the scenery. You can then either ride or climb back to the Alpsitbahn lift, or down to the Kreuzeck lift. Unbelieveable scenery. The temps in early Sept were surprisingly warm (60 F) but understand it could have been much colder.

“Excellent experiance”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Take the local bus(free with transport voucher from your hotel) to Alpspitzbahn - Buy the Garmisch-Classic ticket this really is a lovely trip offering both spectacular cable car rides and a wonderful walk offering amazing panoramas.
Take the cable car up from the Alpspitzbahn, on arriving walk up to the Alpspix platforms for a really spectacular view. After soaking in the sights around you take the path down to the Hochalm lift then continue to the Kreuzeck lift and take this back down. In the meantime enjoy the walk down with wonderful panoramas and amusing notice/information boards at various points on the path down - the walk all the way down to the Kreuzeck lift takes about 1 hour 15 mins.
