Ride the Zugspitzbahn rack railway up Germany's highest mountain

Every Bavarian has to have had a ride on the Zugspitzbahn at least once in their life. It is one of four rack railways in Germany and carries tourists to the top of Germany's highest mountain.

Every true Bavarian (and every Bavarian at heart) has to have had a ride on the Zugspitzbahn rack railway at least once in their life. It is one of only four rack railways in Germany, and has reliably transported tourists up Germany’s highest mountain – from altitudes of 705 to 2,588 metres – since 1930. On the journey up you can enjoy the view of the crystal-clear Eibsee lake and experience the power with which the little train makes its way up the steep mountain. The journey starts right behind Garmisch-Partenkirchen station.
