Wetterwandeck - 6pers. High speed chairlift (detachable) with bubble 1/9

All lifts/​cable cars Zugspitze

The ascent up the Zugspitze from Germany is either with the cog railway to the ski resort on the Zugspitzplatt (75 minutes from the main train station in Garmisch) or with the cable car from Lake Eibsee to the peak. From the peak, you ride the Gletscher lift about 200 vertical meters down. You can also access the peak quickly and comfortably from Ehrwald in Austria with the Tiroler Zugspitz lift. Within the ski resort, there are modern 6-person chairlifts with weather protectors as well as tow lifts. There is sometimes a wait in the evenings since everyone must ride back down to the base with the lift.
