My husband and I were really looking forward to going to Zugspitze on our short trip to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Unfortunately, we were only there for 2 full days, and didn't go the first day... so when the ski lift at Zugspitze was closed on our second and last day, we weren't able to go to the top. We looked online at... More

For those staying in Garmisch- the Alpsptize is much closer, even walkable, than having to drive to Zugspitze. Great views of the valley and a really nice eatery at the top.

Not the highest spot in the Alps, but the availability of food, views, and cost make this a great day trip.

I took my 8 and 10 year old sons up the Alpspitz while spouse was in a conference. We had a great time. We rode up one cable car, then across on the next one to a spot where there is a cafe/restaurant, lounge chairs, and plenty of marked hiking trails. We hiked around for a while before taking the...

Our visit to Alpspitze definitely shaved a couple years off my life due to the wind. Our ride up via the Alpspitzbahn wasn't too bad, and offered better views than that of Zugspitze because it wasn't as crowded. However, the ride on Hochalmbahn (to get off the peak) was frightening to the extreme. I would advise that you give yourself... More
