The varied hiking and recreation area between Alpspitze, Kreuzeck and Hausberg is open to families and pleasure hikers thanks to the cable cars of the Bayerische Zugspitzbahn. One ticket paves the way to exciting excursione, fresh mountain air and pure nature.
The spectacular AlpspiX viewing platform, the family-friendly summit adventure trail, the interactive pleasure adventure trail - the picturesque mountain landscape at the foot of the Alpspitze is hard to beat for its wealth of adventure. It is obvious that locals and vaccation guests are similarly attracted to the cable cars. Families with children, sprightly seniors and mountain lovers appreciate the ascent and descent assistance, which can be used very flexibly with the Garmisch-Classic Ticket.
The most popular and probably also the most beautiful variant of the cable car round trip begins with the Alpspitzbahn, which leads to the 2,050 m high Osterfelderkopf. From the mountain station it is only a few steps to the AlpspiX viewing platform, whose steel girders tower 1,000 meters above the ground and provide exciting views. Around the Osterfelderkopf there are numerous hiking opportunities for young and old, such as the summit adventure trail, which is suitable for pushchairs, with many informative stations and activities for a real summit feeling.
Afterwards, depending on how you feel and whether you like walking, you can take the Hochalmbahn down to 1,700 meters or go the idyllic route over alpine terraces by foot. For this section of the pleasure adventure trail, you should plan about one hour walking time, depending on how intensively you admire the fantastic panoramic views and play with the hands-on stations of the accompanying legend of the giant from the Alpspitze. From the Hochalm, all guests hike in around 30 minutes on a wide path down to the Kreuzeckbahn mountain station, where the final highlight is the valley descent. At the end of the impressive mountain and hiking day, the café-bar Kandahar 2 at the valley station rewards you with a relaxed ambience, cool drinks and snacks.
