Day 6: From Ehrwald back to Garmisch
On the day of our final hiking tour the route led us along beautiful cart tracks and forest paths to the Zugspitz cable car. From there we ascended to the Hochthörle-hut, where we reached the Eibseeblick-viewpoint just shortly after. From there we walked across the ski run, along apparent paths and forest roads through the woods down to the lake. Shortly before we reached Lake Eibsee, the sun appeared from behind the clouds. Without hesitation we took a ride up Mount Zugspitze on the newly built cable car. Unfortunately the summit was enshrined by clouds when we exited the gondola, which meant visibility was limited by a sea of fog, Nevertheless the cable car ride in the gigantic gondola was spectacular. Since it started raining again, we decided to immediately take the cog railway ‘Zugspitzbahn’ back to Garmisch. In the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten we had a leisurely end to the day and enjoyed some Bavarian beer.
