Travel to Garmisch-Partenkirchen from Munich and ascend the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain, by cable car. Have a beer at the highest beer garden in the country and take a round-trip ride through the mountains by a cog-wheel train as well!
What to Expect
Enjoy a day in the German Alps on a full-day excursion from Munich to the Zugspitze. You’ll travel to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, where you’ll take a cable car up the 2962 meters to the summit of Germany’s tallest peak.
The Zugspitze marks the international border between Germany and Austria. In fact there are lifts from both countries that meet at the top of the mountain. In addition restaurants and shops at the summit, there are also telescopes available.
From the top you’ll have breathtaking views of the Alps which seem to stretch on forever. You’ll take a break for lunch at a small mountain hut, where you’ll also have lovely views over the peaks of the Alps and even into the Munich area.
After lunch you’ll jump from Germany into Austria (no passport necessary). You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a beer in Germany’s highest beer garden!
The final highlight of the tour is a round-trip ride through the mountains on a cog-wheel train.
