Cable Car Zugspitze

Reopened on 21st December 2018


For about three months, visitors to the Zugspitze have had to rely solely on the cog wheel train and the Gletscherbahn cable car to go up Germany’s highest mountain. The cable car Zugspitze reopened on Friday, 21st December 2018.

Following completion of all functional testing and sign-off by the experts, the ropeway supervisory authority authorised the operating permit just before Christmas.

The Zugspitze cable car is once again running services for guests of Bayerische Zugspitzbahn daily from 8.30am to 4.45pm.
