We made an amazing train-trip from Garmisch-Partenkirchen. It was really phatastic. We enjoyed the amazing views and could believe, that the nature can be so magic.

Great place with great view. Friendly stuff, speaking basically most of European languages. Everybody is ready to help, nice restaurants with nice prices and fantastic views. Comfortable and quick enough journey by train. Totally recommended for everyone. Absolutely friendly to people with limited possibilities.

What's more impressive than the view itself is the facilities at the summit. It's super spacious with a good mix of outdoor/indoor areas. There's also a restaurant which wasn't open when we visited but it looked very nice. Last but not least, stay on the...More

We took the tram from the Austrian side. Beautiful views and quite fun climbing to the peak. We highly recommend it.

We went there on Aug 8, and it is a minute late that the last 2 ticket for the Zugspitze are just sold! What a regret in my trip! Suggest if you go to ticket office before 12:30 as the staff told us that the...More

You may be able to take the cable car on the Austrian side (we did not do that) but I'm guessing the cog rail is one-way only to the top. We took the train from Munich to Garmisch as we stayed at the military R&R resort... More
