Full description
Hop on a tour bus and dare to see the world from above at Germany's highest peak. This day tour brings you directly into the Alpine upland and its green valleys. Passing the picturesque houses of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, continue the bus journey up the mountain and reach the valley station of the Zugspitze, Germany's highest peak at 2,963 meters. Riding the new cablecar, you will reach the top in just a few minutes. Breathe in the clear air and enjoy the truly staggering view of more than 400 peaks of the Bavarian, Austrian, Swiss and Italian Alps.  Dine at one of the peak's restaurants (vegetarian and Halal dishes are available) and have some fun bobsledding or take a walk on the perpetual glacial ice.  After descending back down the mountain by historic cogwheel train, your comfortable bus will bring you back to Munich.

Although the weather didn't play along and we couldn't catch a glimpse of the summit, this tour is highly recommended! Because the glacier experience was also unforgettable! Our tour guide Elisabeth, who was born in Munich and loves her homeland, made this tour a great experience with her lovable manner and knowledge alone! Many thanks Elisabeth! I would love to come back again to be able to enjoy the view I was hoping for!

The trip was good, however, it could have been better. we went on a day when the weather was not with us and hence we couldn't see any Alps or mountains. While this was a bummer, I believe the excursion was enjoyable. However, few things that could have been done differently were : First, the details about the trip are not comprehensive. it is important that the tourists are informed about a need for solid winter jackets and sturdy shoes. secondly, while the tour guide were extremely knowledgeable, he tended to repeat himself. He kept repeating 5-6 facts/experiences over and over again, which became a little irritating.

Es war ein super Ausflug. Wir hatten eine super Reiseleitung, Elisabeth super ein super netten Busfahrer Ibru. Um 10 Uhr ging es los vom Karlsplatz, auf dem Hinweg haben wir nur 1,5 Stunden benötigt dann waren wir an der Seilbahnstation am Eibsee. Hier ging es dann hoch hinaus. Auf der Zugspitze hatten wir von ca. 13 - 15 Uhr freie Zeit, Elisabeth war super vorbereitet und hat uns Karten und weitere Infos gegeben was man machen kann oder gemacht haben sollte. 15:15 Uhr ging es zur Zahnradbahn und wieder runter. Dort (ca.16 Uhr) wartete unser Bus schon auf uns, da wir super Wetter hatten war alles voll und Elisabet und Ibru haben ihr bestetes gegeben uns so schnell wie möglich nach München zu bringen. Während der Fahrt hat und Elisabeth super viele Infos über die Entstehung von München und Bayern gegeben, es war nicht langweilig sondern super interessant. Sie hat die Führung auf deutsch und englisch immer abwechselnd gegeben, mir und meiner Freundin hat es super Spaß gemacht.
