What a view Zugspitze and from it, ALPS. Jan 15, 2009
Highest mountain point in German side of Alps.

The view of it from down is enough to amaze you. Going up the cable car is an adventure itself. View from the top is breathtaking and visit it yourself to find out.

I definitely enjoyed every second of it. Cold, yes, Magnificent, Oh Yes.

A sight to visit.

Usually visited in the winter because of its glacial skiing, the Zugspitze is an amazing site regardless of the time of year. In the winter it is a favorite area to board or ski by many locals and visitors. If you have never been skiing or boarding on a glacier it is unlike anything you have done before. The days weather will play a big toll on your enjoyment level. If heavy winds and low visibility arent a major concern for you, then you will enjoy yourself regardless. If you require low winds, great visibility and fresh powder, than this is not the place for you. Dont get me wrong, there are days when it is heaven, and then theres the days when its hell. Situated in the bowl of the Zugspitze, Germany's highest moutain, runs are considerably long for being on a glacier. So long in fact, that many begginer skiiers are suprised at how short winded they can become as you are above 3000m elevation and a run from the highest point to the lowest will take you down apx 1000m. For experienced skiiers and boarders, there is an excellent half-pipe and terrain park as well as long runs where you can stray off the beaten path and carve your own routes. Just be cautious as there are numerous rocks that can cause some serious injuries if you arent careful. In the skiing area itself are 8 draglifts and 1 chairlift. If you are visiting in the summer, chances are you will find better weather for site seeing. On a good day you can see 4 countries from the summit. Bring a sweater or jacket as temps in the summer may be in the high 80s at the base, it will be around freezing at the summit. Cost for the roundtrip cable car ride is not cheap, apx 45 Euro, but it is well worth it, esp if you have lunch at the summit or spend the day boarding. If cable cars are not your thing, there is a cog wheel train the carves back and forth up the mountain and through it to the cable car station in the middle of the bowl. Regardless of why you go, enjoy the sites and Germany's highest mountain.
