It is the mountain restuarants and bars that make this place, the atmosphere is fantastic all day and evening, as is the goulash, soup and partying , ever had a bbq in the snow, I hope this has...

We could see the cable cars going up to the top of this mountain and walked over from our place at Edelweiss (military lodge & resort) in Garmisch. It's not as high as the Zugspitz mtn. but close enough. They have hiking trails and a metal platform lookout that extends way out over the edge of the mountain for a... More

The Alspitz is a great alternative to Zugspitze, especially for someone who wants to spend less time getting to the top. The view of the valley and surrounding mountains is wonderful. Because you are closer to Garmisch-Par, you can more easily pick out landmarks. The smaller cable car ride is an adventure in itself. Less crowded, too.

Take the gondola up to the Altspitize and enjoy some beers with stunning scenery! It's well worth the 26 Euro round trip gondola trip! Beautiful!

Went over Christmas and was super cold and windy at the peak, making it that much better. Amazing views and fun little cable car ride up/down.

My husband and I were really looking forward to going to Zugspitze on our short trip to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Unfortunately, we were only there for 2 full days, and didn't go the first day... so when the ski lift at Zugspitze was closed on our second and last day, we weren't able to go to the top. We looked online at... More

For those staying in Garmisch- the Alpsptize is much closer, even walkable, than having to drive to Zugspitze. Great views of the valley and a really nice eatery at the top.
