    Riffelriss is a demand of the rack railway direction Zugspitze. Here all those who want to take the via ferrata to Zugspitze, or who want to hike in the direction of Hohes Egg, get off. Behind the Riffelriss station the rack railway disappears in a 4.4 km long tunnel.

    This ride is not for claustrophobia.

    Corrugated crack is a requirement stop of the cog railway towards the Zugspitze. All those who want to take the Höllenklamm via ferrata to the Zugspitze get off here. The rack railway disappears in a tunnel behind the Riffelriss station. My insider tip, however, is to climb the Zugspitz Arena. During the season there are queues in front of the via ferrata.

    Riffelriss is a stopover on the cog railway on the way to the Zugspitze. Starting point for hikes. Great view.
