A floating steel X in the jagged cliffs – this is the AlpspiX viewing platform, which is located directly over the mountain station of the Alpspitzbahn cable car. The Höllental valley lies thousands of metres below, above is only white-blue sky. You can have an uninterrupted view of the Zugspitze mountain (pictured), the Waxenstein mountains, the north face of the Alpspitz mountain, and down into the valley from the glass bridges. Head on up from Garmisch on the Bavarian Zugspitzbahn railway and Alpspitzbahn cable car; if you arrive with DB, there is a 10 percent discount. If you have bought a regional day ticket for Bavaria, you can use this in the Bavarian Zugspitzbahn railway to Hammersbach.
