If there are any doubts as to the admissibility of the uses, this must be clarified with the BZB before the corresponding use. Any illegal use will be prosecuted by the BZB or the author under civil and, if necessary, criminal law.

The production of copies for your own archiving purposes as well as the electronic or digital storage of the image data offered for archiving purposes (e.g. image databases) is prohibited. The user is not entitled to pass on further rights of use. In the event of a violation of the terms of use, the user may be permanently revoked the right of use granted in these regulations.

Picture credits / author attribution

Every time one of the pictures is published, “Bayerische Zugspitzbahn Bergbahn AG” must be printed as a picture credit. If the name of the photographer is also given for the respective picture, this name must also be given in the form "Bayerische Zugspitzbahn Bergbahn AG / first and last name".
