So glad we hiked this instead of Zugspitze because this one was covered in lush greenery giving us constant beautiful scenery and we could have a look at Zugspitze from Our vantage point.

This mountain can be hiked up from the valley floor, or take a bahn up to the Hammersbach. You can take a trail from there and either hike up the front of the Alpspitz or go around to the back side and hike up that...More

This is probably a more impressive trip to the summit than the higher Zugspitze next door... certainly better if you like to walk down to the mid station before riding by cable car back to base.The "Classic" ticket looks the best bet.

My trip up the Zugspitze was somewhat ruined by cloud. The next day I went up the Kreuzeckbahn, then walked from there to the top of the Alpspitzbahn (easy but steep walk, 1.5 hours). The scattered cloud meant just occasional fantastic views of the mountains...More

Thanks to the Alpspitzbahn, anyone can make it up here to enjoy the views. The food at the top could definitely be better, but there's no rule saying you can't pack your own and just purchase a drink up there. Views of the Rheintal are...More

First of all, go on a clear day, if you can. We went in September and there was snow at the top. We spent about 30-40 minutes there. I would recommend a minimum of 15 minutes, if it is windy, up to 1 hour, if the weather... More
