Full description
Hop on a tour bus and dare to see the world from above at Germany's highest peak. This day tour brings you directly into the Alpine upland and its green valleys. Passing the picturesque houses of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, continue the bus journey up the mountain and reach the valley station of the Zugspitze, Germany's highest peak at 2,963 meters. Riding the new cablecar, you will reach the top in just a few minutes. Breathe in the clear air and enjoy the truly staggering view of more than 400 peaks of the Bavarian, Austrian, Swiss and Italian Alps.  Dine at one of the peak's restaurants (vegetarian and Halal dishes are available) and have some fun bobsledding or take a walk on the perpetual glacial ice.  After descending back down the mountain by historic cogwheel train, your comfortable bus will bring you back to Munich.

Es war ein super Ausflug. Wir hatten eine super Reiseleitung, Elisabeth super ein super netten Busfahrer Ibru. Um 10 Uhr ging es los vom Karlsplatz, auf dem Hinweg haben wir nur 1,5 Stunden benötigt dann waren wir an der Seilbahnstation am Eibsee. Hier ging es dann hoch hinaus. Auf der Zugspitze hatten wir von ca. 13 - 15 Uhr freie Zeit, Elisabeth war super vorbereitet und hat uns Karten und weitere Infos gegeben was man machen kann oder gemacht haben sollte. 15:15 Uhr ging es zur Zahnradbahn und wieder runter. Dort (ca.16 Uhr) wartete unser Bus schon auf uns, da wir super Wetter hatten war alles voll und Elisabet und Ibru haben ihr bestetes gegeben uns so schnell wie möglich nach München zu bringen. Während der Fahrt hat und Elisabeth super viele Infos über die Entstehung von München und Bayern gegeben, es war nicht langweilig sondern super interessant. Sie hat die Führung auf deutsch und englisch immer abwechselnd gegeben, mir und meiner Freundin hat es super Spaß gemacht.

One of the best tours I've done, apart from the wonder of the place, the road route is a beauty. But what is best for the day is Elizabeth, our guide, a great super willing with the best wave, who explained everything perfectly well and gave us a lot of information. Super recommended this excursion

On August 18, 2019 (Sunday) I participated with my 70s parents and college students with 6 children.The roads and mountains were very crowded because it was sunny from morning to night, but personally Bavarian tickets etc. We were saved very much without waiting at all ticket offices than going with. Time is money. If you are traveling with a large group, we recommend such a tour with no waiting time. By the way, once a week this tour was packed and tourists came from all over the world.
