The Zugspitze is one of the most famous mountain peaks in the Alps. Measuring 2,962m, it is not only Germany's highest mountain, but also one of the most popular destinations for visitors from all over the world.
There is a 360° panoramic view from the top and in good weather, more than 400 peaks in surrounding Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy can be seen. Walks high among the Alps where the ice never melts, summer and winter toboggan rides on natural snow and the fact that is easily accessible by two cable cars and a rack-railway make the Zugspitze an ideal mountain destination.
An additional highlight in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is the remarkable Partnach Gorge, which is 2.305 ft. in length, with its walls rising up to 263 ft. The Gorge is the point of departure for many walking tours and can be passed by an iron bridge. The gorge offers remarkable views all year round; in winter, bizarre ice sculptures give this natural beauty its unique charm.
