Full Day Tour to Germany's Highest Peak: Zugspitze

1. Full Day Tour to Germany's Highest Peak: Zugspitze

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.

Enjoy a day in the German Alps on a full-day excursion from Munich to the Zugspitze.

In addition restaurants and shops at the summit, there are also telescopes available. From the top you’ll have breathtaking views of the Alps which seem to stretch on forever. You’ll take a break for lunch at a small mountain hut, where you’ll also have lovely views over the peaks of the Alps and even into the Munich area. After lunch you’ll jump from Germany into Austria (no passport necessary). You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a beer in Germany’s highest beer garden!

I was on a trip with my son. We are both delighted! A beautiful place, breathtaking views. Full organization. The bus is convenient. Great driver. A wonderful guide Elisabeta - professional, caring, helpful, nice, open! Thank you very much for a great trip! We took beautiful memories to Poland.

Absolutely amazing! Mario was a fantastic guide and personalized our experience. Zugspitze is so beautiful. It was snowing when we were there so the visibility was low to see all the mountains but the glacier and experience was still well worth it! So much fun

Today was a great excursion with tour leader Elizabeth and the driver for Grayline Tours. We had a very good explanation of all the places visited and the ones along the way.

Mario is timely, friendly and accommodating. He advised us on where to get the best pictures on the mountain; and, he drove us safely and promptly to where we wanted to be.

One of the best experiences ever. The best guide in the world and a super pleasant trip.
