If you intend to climb the Zugspitze from Ehrwald and take the train back down, 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 climb and miss the big bustle, if you reach the summit after 5 pm.
The course can of course be used if you do not participate in the fondue evening. The ticket can be bought directly before the start of the trip at the summit. In fine weather you can admire the beautiful sunset on the Zugspitze and the summit belongs to you, with luck, all alone.
Information on the extended operating times can be found on the page of the Tiroler Zugspitzbahn under the heading "Events".

This is what it feels like when the whole of Germany is at your feet: At exactly 2,962 meters above sea level, the Zugspitze is the largest elevation in the country, home to its three glaciers and its highest ski area. Half the year there is plenty of natural snow for skiing and boarding on 20 kilometers of slopes.
The Zugspitze also makes non-skiers happy: at the very top, an impressive 360 ° panorama opens up a clear view of over 400 mountain peaks in four countries. The Zugspitz exhibition sharpens the view for the historical development of Germany's most famous mountain. Three toboggan runs, Germany's highest church, an igloo village and the excellent mountain gastronomy make for smiling faces. Only when sunbathing in a deck chair do the eyelids close with relish.
Whether winter sports enthusiasts, nature lovers, romantics or sun worshipers: With the mountain railways everyone can discover the snow-covered Zugspitze from their own perspective.

Through Höllental on the Zugspitze currently only with crampons. Without it, it is extremely dangerous to impossible on the naked ice on the Höllentalferner. There are some climbers back without crampons.
At the Randkluft currently several meters (about 5-6) must be climbed freely without security. Is for the only via ferrata goers a challenge.

beautiful gilded summit cross, which has the form since the first ascents.
Quite a lot of people up there on the small spot of the summit and also on the way there. Nevertheless, a summit photo of the highest mountain in Germany must not be missing, especially if you have run from the very bottom (Ehrwald in my case) up to.

360 ° panorama on the Zugspitze - all around the best views
Wherever you turn and turn: jagged rocks and ice as far as the horizon and above only the sky. In good weather conditions, Germany's highest lookout offers a clear view of more than 400 peaks in Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland at almost 3,000 meters - including the highest mountains in the Eastern Alps such as the Großglockner (3,798 m), the Wildspitze (3,768 m), the Ortler (3,905 m) and the Piz Bernina (4,049 m).
Up to 250 km of distant views and a limitless feeling of freedom - that's only available on the Zugspitze!
