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".

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.

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.
