Tips

  • Jürgen Hild

    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".

    Here you should get up pretty early, because as soon as the train opens, the most famous summit in Germany is flooded with tourists.

    When hiking from the glacier to the seats, the path forks to the right, it is easier to keep to the right, the left is high alpine.

    The inexperienced should go the via ferrata from the Wiener-Neustädter Hütte to the Zugspitze only with via ferrata. This is especially true when snow is.

    It's best to go during the week, the summit is completely overcrowded

    If you want to go up, you should prepare very well. For "flatlanders" this is no easy hike

    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.

    Unfortunately, the rush to the summit is so big and quite uncoordinated that sometimes it gets dangerous ...

    The ascent via Stopselzieher with overnight on the Knorrhütte and subsequent descent via Reintal and Einkehr in the Reintalangerhütte is a nice weekend tour and durauchaus to recommend.

    Once standing at the summit cross of the Zugspitze is a dream of many mountain hikers. After a steep climb you will be rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view

    Attention! If too much it can be dangerous. (Unfortunately no regulation how many people go up / down)

    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.

    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!

    Very nice up there, preferably by train up and with the glacier cable car to the summit, then with the new cable car to the Eibsee back into the valley, it was great!
