    If you intend to climb the Zugspitze from Ehrwald and descend by train, you should first inquire about the operating hours of the Tiroler Zugspitzbahn. Several times a month a fondue evening takes place on the Zugspitze, where the train runs until 9.30 pm. So you can take your time on the ascent and miss the big bustle, if you reach the summit after 5pm. The course can of course be used if you do not attend the fondue evening. The ticket can be bought directly before the start of the trip at the summit. So you can admire the beautiful sunset on the Zugspitze in good weather and the summit belongs to you, with luck, all alone.
    Information on the extended operating hours can be found on the page of the Tiroler Zugspitzbahn under the heading "Events".

    Day 3 of our mountain tour led from the Knorr hut over the Zugspitze Sonnalpin to Zugspitze, which was not planned, fresh snow in late September. OK :-) Challenge and unique experience in a well packaged under 7-10 cm of snow. Until the Sonnalpin the path was no longer recognizable by the color markings on the stones, only a few marking poles and Komoot led us over the snowy boulder field to the Zugspitzplatt. From here, the goal was to guess the via ferrata to Zugspitze, but not really watch through the snow. Again, the route guidance of Komoot, in conjunction with a Garmin Fitness clock, helped us to find the right way through the snowy boulder field to the via ferrata. Once there, we had a single image, the icicles on the ropes were not vertical, but frozen almost horizontally by the strong wind. As a result, the climb to the summit was upgraded once again, it was just GEIL :-)

    A visit is always worthwhile in good weather, there is usually something nice to discover.

    You should start early to the summit before the masses of "sneaker tourists" besiege the summit. ;-)
