We were going to do the round trip of cog to top, the the cable car back to Eibsee. Unfortunately this cable car is being renewed and the advertised opening date will be on 21 December 2017. It did not matter as the train up...More

We spent an afternoon on the mountain and at the base in Eibsee, what a wonderful way to spend a day in Bavaria! This is a must do if you are in Germany!

A trip to the highest point in Germany is a must when traveling through Bavaria. Currently the Bahn (Lift) to the top is under renovation but will be completely newly updated and modernized this year...I believe projected re-opening is in December. A wonderful way to...More

If you're afraid of heights, this isn't for you. I'm not afraid of heights, and I found myself pondering the ideals of German engineering, sometimes with my eyes closed. Once at the top, it is AMAZING! The views are spectacular, especially if you have a...More

Came here with my husband and our dog on our way back home from Austria. The cable car is very safe and large. Quite expensive for what it is but we expected that as a tourist attraction. Very dog friendly. At the top there's a...More

Be sure to do it on a clear way. Ascending from the Austria side is cheaper and less crowded. Great views. If you want to go all the way to the summit, wear appropriate shoes!

Questions & Answers
Hello, I am travelling to Germany this spring and would love to see Zugspitze. I am wondering if most people used a guide to get to the top? I am traveling solo and have had a very hard time finding guides to take me from Munich to here! The one tour listed on trip advisor requires 2 people to book so I would be very thankful if anyone is able to let me know which guide/company they used if you did use one. If you did it without a guide--how tricky did you find it to get there without a guide? I have never travelled abroad and speak no German so I am very hesitant about going here without a guide, and am wondering what your experience was. Regarding those who have summited--is there actually a chance that you will fall off the side of the mountain if you do not bring carabeeners? All the best, Diana

First, take a train from Munich and you will end up where the cog is to take you up to the summit. We did not have a guide, took the cog up and enjoyed what we could see, which unfortunately wasn't much as the weather had... More

It was 53 euro per person. The morning is best to avoid crowds. Only go if the sky is clear.

If you are not sking then buy the non skier ticket. The old cogwheel train takes about 45 minutes. December 2017 the new high speed cable car should be finished and the trip quicker and much more Scenic. You can purchase... More
