Lots of fun here. We went up via the cablecar, it was through a mountain so not much to look at, but then you reach the glacier. Sled down from the station and take a walk on the snow and ice. Afterwards, take another cable...More

I took the train from Garmisch-Partenkirchen and had to transfer trains before reaching the plateau short of the summit. To reach the summit you need to take4 minute a cable car ride (included in the train price). The view is breathtaking.

Worth the trek! By Cog train or Gondola it’s worth the climb to 10,000 feet. You can see multi countries from the top. Two restaurants and gift shops and a wedding chapel.

We traveled here from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, on the German side, and took the tram into Eibsee from the Zugspitze summit. We noted there is parking near the tram station there, and I believe it is a pay parking lot.
