The trip up with the new cable car offers great views along the way. Arriving at the top you have magnificent views but given the costs of the tickets it is worthwhile to check the weather using the webcams. Climbing to the top of Zugspitze...More
From start to end off day train through mountain. Chance for boys to sledge in snow ❄️ take breathtaking pictures. Not for the faint hearted spectacular pictures. Food reasonable in cafe adults enjoyed cold beer. Cable car back down left my stomach on mountain top....More
This had great views but was it worth 56€ a piece? Not to us as we travel to Switzerland often. But if this is a once in a lifetime trip and you want to see the Swiss/Austrian/ Italian and German Alps from one location..then go...More
Easy access from Garmich Partenkirchen with train and cableway. Stay and enjoy the view and maybe something to eat and drink at the restaurants, on at the very top and one where the train stops or go on a trip in the mountains.
This is a must in Bavaria. The views going to the top are incredible and worth every minute. The new cable cars are large and smooth gliders up the mountainside. The top amenities and building are limited at this time (Summer 2018) due to construction...More
At just about 9000 ft. tall, it's the highest in Germany. You can view the Alps of 4 different countries from the top. Really a spectacular view. There are several places to eat as well as souvenir shops. A jacket wasn't needed at the top...More

Hi, We took the train to Eibsee from Garmisch and bought our tickets in Garmisch. I think the train ride was only 30 minutes at the most from Garmisch. From there we got off the train and got in a short line for the cable car which took about 10 minutes to the top. Once you are up there there are restaurants and an outdoor restaurant. You can be on the German side or Austrian side. We loved it. Then we took a smaller cable car to the glacier and went sledding. All of this was included in the ticket we bought in Garmisch. We also did the Wank Mountain which was also nice but we loved the Zugspitze. I recommend it.
We went early morning to the Garmisch-Partenkirchen train station and purchased the cogwheel train tickets plus the cable car ride there. The train ride through the valley is scenic and when you arrive at the cable car you... More
We went early morning to the Garmisch-Partenkirchen train station and purchased the cogwheel train tickets plus the cable car ride there. The train ride through the valley is scenic and when you arrive at the cable car you go right in to catch the cable car ride up the mountain. The lines are long there. Be sure to try to get in front or back of the line when you get through to the final waiting area. That way you don’t get stuck in the middle of the car where you can’t look out the windows and take pictures or videos. I got an awesome video of the ride up and down. You then take the train back to Garmisch.
