Milestones of Bayerische Zugspitzbahn

200 years of Zugspitze and mountain cableway history

Functioning infrastructure is the basis of any sport and leisure fun on the mountain. The development of hiking and winter sports resorts around the Zugspitze involved countless structural challenges at first, such as building suitable lift facilities. Many other pioneering technical achievements and mountain construction projects have been realised since the cogwheel train opened in 1930.
