From Munich: Zugspitze Mountain Van Tour

1. From Munich: Zugspitze Mountain Van Tour

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.

Zugspitze was such a wonderful experience- the glacier at the top is a must do! You will catch a glimpse of the lake from the cable car. Mario was a superb guide - arriving right on time, lovely driving and guiding us through everything including recommendations for lunch! It took about 8 hours in all and is an enjoyable experience that can also be done by seniors.

I loved the place, very beautiful, everything very organized, the guide was very kind and friendly, the bus driver too. The place is beautiful, too bad the weather was rainy and visibility was impaired but it is a tour that is very worth doing. Would definitely come back.

Great service and a comfortable ride in a van with Mario. We chose this for the small group size and it didn’t disappoint. Mario tried to make sure we could sit together with our children and gave us tips on how to get best views in the cable car etc. thanks for the fun!

The pick-up was on time. The ride was very good and safe. I recommend this to all. Only suggestion is that you can include one one place which is very near.

Barbara was a really fantastic tour guide. Everything was well planned and organized and we really enjoyed our day. Would recommend this tour to anyone!
