The longest Tibet-style footbridge of the world, with its 406 metres length is a true highlight. The impressive engineering and breath-taking view enthuse all visitors. The bridge connects the castle ruins of Ehrenberg with Fort Claudia. After an ascent of approximately 20 minutes you are rewarded with a 360° panorama view. #Viewwiththrill is the motto, and you will know why, looking down from the bridge. You can also reach the highline with the EhrenbergLiner (barrier-free).
Inhale the clear mountain air from the pole position on the highest mountain of Germany: the Zugspitze. On a clear day you can let your eyes wander over almost 400 mountain peaks in four different countries. Those, who want to get even higher than the viewing platform, need good equipment and sure-footedness to reach the peak, conquering the Via Ferrata. Curious explorers experience an interactive mix of interesting facts and adventure in the Experiential World. The hungry and thirsty enjoy refreshments at the panorama restaurant.
There are no dull moments in the region around Ehrwald as a number of themed trails provide nature experiences, hiking fun and a lot of adventures in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena – for all guests, no matter their age.

On Moosle’s Explorer Trail, in the Magic Forest and on the Beaver path you will find new exciting adventures at every turn. Touching nature, listening to exciting stories and exploring the world – great fun, not just for the kids.
In the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena an old Tyrolean tradition is celebrated every year in a very special and unique way. All over the Tyrol, summer solstice bonfires are lighted. But the fires in the valley basin of Ehrwald-Lermoos-Biberwier were declared immaterial UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, due to their unique nature. Spectacular symbols – from spiritual motifs to current topics - set the mountains ablaze. It is truly a special feeling, to sit in the dark and watch the grand designs and flickering lights.
