Always worth a hiking holiday: The Zugspitze region

Wonderful hiking view to Zugspitze

The ultimate hiking-feeling in Germany

That’s not half bad, the Zugspitze that is: with nearly 3000 metres in altitude it is the highest mountain range in Germany. The holiday region situated in the South of Bavaria is home of three glaciers. During a hiking holiday with Eurohike however you get know this region the way you fancy it. As fast-paced or as leisurely as you please. And you totally do not have to worry about your luggage. Every day it is transported to your next accommodation and waiting for you when you arrive. That way you have more time to explore the beauty of the Zugspitz-region.  

Imposing panorama onto four countries

Don’t worry: you do not have to climb up the Zugspitze-summit of course. By cable car you ascend comfortably onto dizzy heights. From the summit you have a sublime panoramic view. The mountain peaks of four different countries lie at your feet.

But even apart from the peak the Zugspitz-region has a way of indulging the hikers’ senses. Ravines with roaring waters cascading down into the depth, for example. You can also explore the cozy little towns during your hiking holiday. Away from the tourist traps it is easy to find relaxation and tranquility here.

Experience the magic of the Zugspitze during a hiking holiday

The mountain world above Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Grainau is considered a dream destination for many hiking enthusiasts. This region can be very proud to offer perhaps the most fascinating views far and wide. This is why the Eurohike-team has researched and tested the most stunning locations for you, just to ensure that you do not miss out on any sights during your hiking holiday.

At the Zugspitze-summit you have literally arrived at the peak of bliss. There are several restaurants serving Bavarian culinary delicacies as well as international specialities. It may be due to the breathtaking view or the healthy fresh mountain air: high up on top of the ‚roof’ of Germany a ‚Brotzeit’-meal simply tastes twice as nice.
