Rained out of a summit attempt Jul 24, 2011
Garmisch is a beautiful part of Germany! I highly recomend a trip here, even if you encounter some rainy weather like we did. Unfortunately, July in Germany is incredibly rainy usually so we were unable to attempt to hike Zugspitze as it was snowing on top! So we spent a rainy afternoon hiking to Partnachklamm which is a beautiful gorge just up from the Olympic Stadium. Perfect day hike! It is a wonderful place to walk around as well because you can climb to the top of the ski jump and have a great (if not too rainy) view of Garmisch and the surrounding mountains. Highly recommend!

The Zugspitze is the highest peak in Germany which means you can’t get higher without leaving the country’s ground.

The mountain is located in the middle of a very likable area near Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

The Zugspitze is popular among tourists no matter if as glorious ski field in winter or impressive lookout in summer.

The well-known Zugspitzbahn, which is a traditional cog railway, and two conventional railways bring you from the base to the peak.

Reaching the top is definitely worth a trip even though it’s not the cheapest excursion. That’s why you should make sure that the weather conditions are acceptable otherwise the short trip to heaven could just lead to a foggy cloud layer (don’t worry you’re not necessarily nearsighted then).

But if the sun shines a stunning panoramic view that’s a wonderful motif in countless photo albums is guaranteed.

This peak has to offer a couple of different highlights as Germany’s highest chapel, an adventurous hiking trail and local exhibitions.

Besides it’s a beautiful spot to chill out while tasting an apple strudel or a local beer on the terrace on the one hand and a cool ski region with brilliant snow conditions during the cold months on the other hand.

If for an active holiday, enjoying an imposing nature experience or finding an awesome place for a laid-back rest this mountain is an attractive place to stay at.
