Zugspitze Glacier Guided Tours

Meet & Greet with the Zugspitz Glacier

Look out all you nature researchers: Expert glacier guides accompany interested visitors right into the middle of the fascinating world of ice and snow on the Zugspitze Plateau. Along the path from the Sonnalpin Glacier Restaurant to the northern Schneeferner and the „Windloch“ (Wind Hole) viewing point mini-geologists and budding glaciologists will learn all about the microcosm glacier. Following the guided tour you can broaden your glacier knowledge at the multi-media stations along the GletschErlebnisWeges.

In very good company

The guided glacier tours take three-quaters of an hour and are a free service provided by the Bayerischen Zugspitzbahn. The meeting point is daily at 11.00 and 13.30 hrs at the Maypole on the Sonnalpin terrace (sturdy shoes are recommended). In poor weather conditions, the Glacier Guides offer indoor tours which cover the technology and history of the Zugspitze.
