The best ways to get you up the mountain in style in Bavaria

These five methods are an extremely pleasant way to reach the peak – breathtaking views are included.

Let's be honest – when you're standing there out of breath and covered in sweat on the slope, can you really take in and enjoy the view of the mountains? These five methods are a more pleasant way to reach the peak.

Ausblick vom Tegelberg auf das Tal

Majestic views with the Tegelbergbahn cable car

The Tegelberg mountain is situated within the former kingdom of Ludwig II, Bavaria's fairytale king, and as a result, you can expect majestic views from the top.
Discover destination

The cable car to the nature reserve in the Ammergebirge mountains is also ideal for sporty people. In the winter, pistes and cross-country ski trails around the mountain station are perfect for skiing, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. In the summer, you can take hiking and climbing trips in the nature reserve or learn interesting information about the ice ages, geology and culture, as well as the history of the Bavarian royal family on themed routes.

Nebelhorn Gipfelstation mit Bergpanorama

With the Nebelhornbahn to the mountain panorama

Nature experiences on the Nebelhorn: from 400 snow-covered peaks at 2,224 metres to green-shimmering mountain lake romance and thrills on the north face.
Discover destination

The Nebelhorn mountain also gives you a great vantage point over the Alps. After travelling with the cable railway, you have a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains at the top. If the mountain lives up to its name (which means fog horn) and is enveloped in fog, don't worry. Once you've reached the peak, you'll be on cloud nine with a view of the mountain peaks and the blue sky.

Ride the Karwendelbahn cable car up the colossal Karwendal mountains

Climb aboard in Mittenwald, and ten minutes later, you'll emerge into another world – 1,311 metres higher.

It's not just the coffee and cake on the sun terrace that make the mountain station so appealing – once you've arrived at the top, you can discover Germany's highest nature information centre, picturesque paths for winter walkers, crystal clear mountain lakes and rugged rocks.
