Exhibition on the Zugspitze

„Tourism, Technology & Nature – the Zugspitze“

Acquire a stimulating dose of culture in the midst of high alpine nature: the free exhibition at the Zugspitze summit documents developments surrounding the Zugspitze, from the very first ascent in 1820 to present day. 

Visitors are presented with historical milestones and technical achievements in an entertaining display – faded photographs, old tickets, ticker punchers and films on the spectacular construction of the cogwheel train and the Eibsee cable car illustrate the progress of the Zugspitze story. A section of the rail track and an original cogwheel throw light on the engineering techniques required to get trains to operate over gradients of up to 25 percent!
