Hotel Zugspitze Staudacherhof

Zugspitze

Adventures and breathtaking views

For many, it is the number one sight in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. An important item on the “bucket list”. By locals and long-distance travelers. Germany’s highest mountain. And the highest peak in the Wetterstein mountains. At 2,962 meters above sea level. The Zugspitze!

The Zugspitze belongs to the landscape of the region, like beer to Bavaria. It is almost always in view – whether you are cycling, hiking or enjoying your afternoon coffee on the Staudacherhof terrace.

The “Top of Germany” is not only home to three glaciers, but also offers its visitors a unique view of the Alpine peaks of neighboring Austria, Switzerland and Italy. You won’t soon forget this panorama! Fortunately, it’s only a stone’s throw from Staudacherhof to the Zugspitze train station.

The journey to the top of the Zugspitze

Your starting point is the Zugspitze railway station in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. From there, the cog railway takes you via Hammersbach, Grainau and the Eibsee up to the Zugspitzplatt. There you can enjoy the first high-alpine impressions before you take the last few meters onto the viewing platform with the Gletscherbahn.

We would recommend to return to the valley with the new Zugspitze cable car, which heads for the Eibsee train station. Enjoy the incredible view of the lake during your ride!

Arriving at the Eibsee, the rack railway brings the Zugspitz visitors back to Grainau, Hammersbach and Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Alternatively, the Eibsee bus can also be used for that journey.
