Outstanding overall experience

The Zugspitze is Germany’s most versatile mountain all year round


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 tenacious mountaineer to get to the summit. Day-trippers from all over the world love the mountain for its glacier feeling, four-country panoramic views and summit restaurant.

The ultra-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.
