[EuroTrip-Bavaria] Zugspitze Mountain

posted by outlawq8 comment: 1

The Zugspitze, at 2,962 metres above sea level, is the highest peak of the Wetterstein Mountains as well as the highest mountain in Germany. It lies south of the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and the border between Germany and Austria runs over its western summit. South of the mountain is the Zugspitzplatt, a high karst plateau with numerous caves. On the flanks of the Zugspitze are three glaciers, including the two largest in Germany: the Northern Schneeferner with an area of 30.7 hectares and the Höllentalferner with an area of 24.7 hectares. The third is the Southern Schneeferner which covers 8.4 hectares.

It’s one of the places you’ve got to visit if you ever go to germany, the view is great and the weather is outstanding and freezing :p don’t forget to wear heavy clothes so you’ll enjoy and and not get sick up there hehe.

any ways it’s about an hour driving from Munich it’s not so far you’ll even enjoy the view when driving.

and this is the nice city of Garmisch-Partenkirchen it’s near the mountain about 6 kilo far, after the 1 hour driving we came here to walk and check the city and take some pictures, it’s a very beautiful city.

after walking and looking around i had to ask how to get to the mountain so they told me i have to go to a place called Eibsee, it’s a big lake near the mountain so we did.

this is the car parking and this is our car the parking costs 2€ or 3€ i don’t remember

so we bought out tickets each ticket costs 48€ they even gave us free gummy bear candy :p

gummy bears 😀

so we went to the cable-car so we’ll get to the top of the mountain the look was awesome i can’t even see my car :p

as you can see the lake on the left, and so we are on the top of the mountain

the weather up there is soo good just take a deep breath and enjoy the clean air, thanks god the sun was out so we get warm up hehe otherwise we would be freezing, we can even see people climbing the mountain, check them out

and this is the top of it 2,962 meters high

then we got into another cable car to take us to another lower spot of the mountain so we’ll ski and enjoy the mountain it was 2600 meter, there’s also a restaurant

there’s also a BMW car up here :p

this is me enjoying sliding on the mountain… actually i fall as i was going down really fast i lost control :p but it was fun

after a long fun day on this great mountain you will go back to where you parked by a train that goes inside the mountain

it’s was a really fun trip where adults and children would have fun and enjoy the looks, weather and everything was just amazing.
