Germany's highest peak

Zugspitze – Top of Germany


At 2,962 metres above sea level, the Zugspitze in southern Bavaria outdoes every other mountain in Germany. Thanks to convenient lifts, you don’t need to be a tenacious mountaineer to get to the summit. Visitors from all over the world love the mountain for its glacier feeling, four-country panoramic views and summit restaurant.

The modern Cable car Zugspitze, the nostalgic cogwheel train and the Gletscherbahn cable car
make the Zugspitze a highly accessible destination, combining classic mountain experiences and contemporary adventures.

Impressive 360° panorama

On the very top, Germany’s most beautiful roof terrace is a popular spot to enjoy the unique 360° panorama of 400 alpine peaks in Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland year-round at eye level with the golden summit cross. Look out into the distance – up to 250 kilometres on clear days – in winter and high summer.
