Road to the top of Germany


The Zugspitze, at 2,962 m above sea level, is the highest mountain in Germany. The Zugspitze was first climbed on 27 August 1820 by Josef Naus, his survey assistant, Maier, and mountain guide, Johann Georg Tauschl. In our times three cable cars run to the top of the Zugspitze. One of them is the Bavarian Zugspitze Railway. From Eibsee (it lies south of the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen) a rack railway runs inside the northern flank of the mountain and ends on the Zugspitzplatt, from where a second cable car takes passengers to the top (Wikipedia).
