The Zugspitze peak
Our local mountain is the Zugspitze. The state border between Austria and Germany runs over the west summit of the 2,962 metres high Zugspitze, which is the highest mountain of Germany and name giver of the holiday region of the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena.
The modern Tiroler Zugspitzbahn cable car takes you up to the ridge below the summit. Alternatively, you can get up and down from the German side using either the cogwheel train or the Bavarian Zugspitzbahn cable car (Eibseeseilbahn). Once at the top, it's just a short walk to the summit cross, however you should be sure-footed and not be afraid of heights.
