Sunrise rides to Zugspitze

Summit gold

for early risers

The "Morgenglühen" is the perfect response you can give to the relatively short winter days. The first sunrays of the day offer the possibility to immerge into the magic atmosphere, created by the golden morning skies, illuminating 400 summits.

The sunrise rides on Germany's highest mountain are fascinating and sporty at the same time. The long day on Zugspitze begins at 7 a.m. with a ride in the Cable car Zugspitze up to an altitude of almost 3,000 meters. Half an hour later the sun rises and bathes the 400 surrounding peaks in golden light.

An unforgettable picture that you can also enjoy during breakfast, because the unlimited view is included in the Panorama 2962 restaurant on the Zugspitze. Afterwards you'll be the first to carve your turns on the still untouched pistes.
