"Borderline experience": Zugspitze in the Wetterstein

The Zugspitze has views towards both Bavaria and Tyrol – the border runs directly across the western summit. On clear days the panoramic view from the summit of the Zugspitze is simply breathtaking: a sea of summits in four countries is at your feet! Plus three glaciers flank the Zugspitze – home to the tiny glacier fleas.

Summit experiences from Ehrwald: Zugspitze with the cable car

The first ascent of the Zugspitze took place in summer of 1820. Ever since then, ascents have become more cosy – best with the Tyrolean Zugspitzbahn, a modern cabin cable car with a capacity of 100 guests per gondola. 1,750 m of altitude difference are covered within only 10 minutes – already the summit cross, mounted in 1851, is within your grasp.

Rare animals and plants in the forests and on the rocks of the Zugspitze

The different altitudes of the Zugspitze are home to a very different array of animals. Reed deer, capercailzies, hazel hens and black grouse occupy the forests, while the areas higher up are home to swift chamois, speedy mountain hares, meddlesome alpine choughs, and rare, tender Apollo butterflies. Hint: try some game watching with your host Mr Pesendorfer.
