At 2,962 m (or 9,717ft), the Zugspitze is Germany’s highest mountain peak and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Bavarian Alps. The border between the Federal Republic of Germany and Austria crosses the western summit of the Zugspitze. As such, the Zugspitze massif is part of both the German federal state of Bavaria and Austria’s Tyrol.
From Munich, the Zugspitze can be easily reached either by train or by car via Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Making the ascent on foot is hard work and only advisable for very fit, experienced mountain hikers. It is much easier to approach the summit cross from the German side with the Eibsee Cable Car or the Bavarian Zugspitze Railway.
