Looking at the Zugspitze


The Wetterstein Mountains (German: Wettersteingebirge) is a mountain group in the Eastern Alps, between the cities Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Mittenwald, Seefeld and Ehrwald. It extends in Bavaria in Germany as well as in the province of Tyrol in Austria. The most famous mountain of the Wetterstein Mountain chain, the Zugspitze summit (2,962 m), is at the same time the highest peak of Germany. 


The scenic landscape, good network of cable cars and lifts makes the mountains are heavily frequented by tourists for most of the year. The Wetterstein Mountains chain is an ideal region for alpinists and climbers, but also an ideal place to leisure activities for families.
