We picked Alspitz over Zugspitz during our visit to Bavaria and found it absolute value for money. Purchase the Garmisch classic ticket which entitles you to ride 3 different cable cars and access to the AlpspiX viewing platform which is stunning. Also a great little...More

A trip to the Garmisch area would not be complete without visiting Alpspitz. If you have several days in the area be sure to buy a Zugspitze Card. Once purchased you can take daily trips on the Alpspitz and Kreuzeckweg cablecars. We can take the...More

At half the price of the nearby ZugSpite, and the possability to take the cable car up, and walk down this was our choise. Cable car was fast and efficient. It allowed our dogs to travel with us for a small fee. We spent several...More

Visited late June 2018. The cable car is speedy and takes you up to the viewing platform which is quite unnerving but some impressive engineering. There were plenty of walks around the Alpspitz area and paths were clearly marked. Spectacular views. A lot quieter than...More

The zugspitz was clouded over and so went to the alpspitz. What a treat to discover all the wonders this place has to offer. Not to mention the there exists a walking trail that takes you though an enchanted valley. The scary part is the...More

First of all, go on a clear day, if you can. We went in September and there was snow at the top. We spent about 30-40 minutes there. I would recommend a minimum of 15 minutes, if it is windy, up to 1 hour, if the weather... More
