Munich – Trip to Zugspitze
Visit the Top of Germany – Zugsptize. From Munich, it's only 1 1/2 hours by train & about 1 hour 45 mins by road to the Bavarian Alps, in particular the former Winter Olympic town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, which is beautiful and lively in its own right. But the real reason to come here is to get to the top of the Zugspitze, Germany's highest peak at 2,964 m. Get off the train and take a short walk to the Bayerische Zugspitzbahn station (this is a private transportation system, so rail passes don't work). Get a Zugspitze round trip ticket and take the first train to Eibsee. There you'll have to choose whether to continue to the top via cable car or train. The cable car is steep, spectacular, quick, and it takes you right to the top. The train is a bit more roundabout--literally, as part of the route is a spiral tunnel inside the mountain--as it takes you to station just below the peak where you can linger or board a cable car for the last piece of the trip. The views are truly awesome and words don't do them justice. You can apparently see five different countries on a clear day. Also if you get time why not take a stroll round the Eibsee lake nearby after you've taken the hair raising cable car back down from the summit. A full day is recommended for experience this wonderful mountain & its surroundings.
This tour can be done with transportation in coach & live commentary on Sundays at 10.15am at a supplement of Euro 50 per person. Overnight in Munich
