Wendelstein, Brannenburg

(4.5/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
See a mountain both inside and up high at Wendelstein. A zippy cable car can take you to the top of the 1,838 m (6,030 ft) mountain, or you can choose the slower rack railway through tunnels and over bridges all the way up. The lookout platform on the top station terrace provides a remarkable view of the Central Alps. The Wendelstein church up top offers religious services. You can tour the peek, or explore the cave, which reaches 300 m (984ft) into the mountain. The Geo-Park provides information about geological history, while the observatory at the summit teaches about astronomy. The mountain even has a ski area for advanced skiers, as well as a restaurant and a souvenir kiosk. Take a look at our Brannenburg itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Wendelstein and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Who is on the Wendelstein must necessarily go with the stone cable car to the Summit. It offers a super view of the Valley. You can climb the Summit but also with the Selbahn or on well-marked hiking trails.

  • Like last year, we visited the Wendelstein... This year, we were not disappointed by the magnificent surroundings and of the Aussicht.Und a matter of course we were also guests in the restaurant and again we were not disappointed. The food was very tasty and plentiful. The service was very good and the room also. So people up on the Wendelstein and enjoy.
