Though difficult to get to the top, the views are absolutely worth the work to get there (on a pretty day). We had blue skies and 25 degrees and it couldn't have been more perfect or beautiful! Prettiest natural view I've ever seen!

Zugspitze has great view starting from the bottom. In order not to miss anything you should take both mode of transportation. I would recommend taking the cable car first then walk down to the train station which will allow you to see more of the view and may be even participate in sledding at the hill below.

It feels great standing on top of Germany, overlooking all snow-capped mountains. Thankful for the great weather on my day of visit. The perfect weather makes the view simply amazing. Transport is easy and convenient from Munich HBF station, though the price to get up to Zugspitze cost a separate amount of 44.50Euros, the price is definitely worth it for... More

The view is so beautiful up here. Can't visit without going up the mountain! Take the zugspitze train from garmisch bahnhof, it stops at hausberg, kreuzeck, hammers Bach, Grainau (hop off and walk 2m to the train going to Eibsee), next stop Eibsee. You can either stay on the train for 45min which goes into the mountain and comes out... More

This is quite an expensive day trip (€44.50 per person), but well worth it for the stunning views. You need a sunny day, to best appreciate this trip. At the summit there are two cafés/restaurants, one on the Austrian side and one on the German side. There's a walkway connecting the two. Both have amazing views looking in opposite directions....

We had a perfect day for this trip. We could see many miles in all directions. The trip to the top I'd just 10 minutes. Great view. Only negative is this activity is way overpriced. But we did it anyway.

Picturesque view, unforgettable experience, too impressive reminiscences - this is only beginning of the list what Zugspitze will offer you. Don't miss the chance to enjoy your trip by train and see the Alps from inside up to first glacier and then go up by a cable car to the top and fill your lungs with pure oxygen and pamper... More

Views on the ride in the gandola and from the top were awesome. Can't think of a better spot to grab a beer than the top of Germany!

Didn't get the full experience that day due to a snow storm. The cable cars was closed but we were still able to go up the mountains via train. It was still a wonderful experience. The restaurant was opened so we had lunch there. Great variety of food to choose from. Would definitely love to go back.
