    Information on the Deutschland-Ticket
    • The Deutschland-Ticket is only valid on the valley route of the cogwheel train from Garmisch-Partenkirchen to Grainau. To continue to lake Eibsee or Zugspitze a separate ticket must be purchased.
    • The Deutschland-Ticket is not valid in cable cars. 
    • A discount on the mountain railway ticket is not possible with the Deutschland-Ticket.
    • Transport with the Deutschland-Ticket on the cogwheel train and Eibseebus is only possible if the number of guests allows it. At weekends and during holidays, it is likely that demand will exceed the existing capacity of the trains and buses and therefore not all people can be carried.
      Please note that guests with a valid mountain railway ticket have priority when traveling with the cogwheel train.
