A hike on the Zugspitze

Climb the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain at 2,962m. Walk along easy paths, past scenic attractions, through densely wooded valleys, over sunny passes to the Zugspitze’s ‘eternal snow’. You need to be fit for this.

If you prefer a more effortless ascent of the Zugspitze, let the cable car or cogwheel train take the strain. The Gletscherbahn takes you straight to the summit in a few minutes. Once at the top, take in the awe-inspiring 360° panoramic view encompassing more than 400 peaks in Austria, Italy and Switzerland. Afterwards, warm up in the Panorama Lounge.

You’ll find more brilliant hiking in nearby Reutte in Tyrol where you can get close to nature as you walk. The Tiroler Lech Nature Park is only a stone’s throw away from Ehrwald, and offers plenty of variety – perfect for fans of outdoor pursuits.
