The Zugspitze – Germany’s highest mountain

Marvel at the breathtaking view at 2.962 metres above sea level.

Today, Zugspitze mountain is one of the most popular trip destinations in our area. Every year, thousands of people enjoy the breathtaking view over four countries and the 2000 - 3000 metre – high peaks of the eastern Alps.

The Zugspitze is part of the Wettersteingebirge mountain range and is a border mountain between Germany and Austria. The name of the Zugspitze is derived from the many avalanche paths that sweep down from the northern upper slopes of the massif.

First Ascend

The first recorded ascent to the summit was accomplished by Lieutenant Josef Naus by order of The Royal Topographic Bureau on 27.08.1820. However, it is very likely that local people had conquered the peak years earlier according to a map from 1770. For a long time the recorded height of the Zugspitze oscillated between 2.960 and 2.970 metres. According to the latest recordings it is 2.962,06 metres high and hence Germany's highest mountain.
