Wendelstein, Brannenburg
(4.5/5 based on 90 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.

  • Incredibly, we were lucky with the weather, we had a vision of more than 90 km, which was quite fantastic!. Above there is still a sun terrace of the restaurant, the climb to the Summit (ca 120 meters above good way & stairs), a mountain Chapel next to the breathtaking views (unfortunately just closed), a cave (2 euro extra), overlooking the number cycling track and the large gondola. Both means to the Summit without effort. Definitely worth a visit, if the weather cooperates. We found it very nice! Different hiking trails lead up to it, so anyone who may run is certainly a way.

  • The Cog Railway up the mountain, it is incomparably better than with the gondola. The surcharge is worth it, especially for those with mild fear of heights. The mountain station is connected to a lit means smaller Rock Tunnel to the Berggasthof, there is not another way out. People with extreme claustrophobia should know that. The plant is Alpine modern and offers a very nice trip experience, who can, should ascend to the Summit - secure way - only for those! The panorama is here at its best

  • "Electric" on the Wendelstein over 100 years! Germany's oldest high mountain railway is FEATURED in shot and up to date technical security actually a museum piece, but. The industry pioneer Otto von Steinbeis built until 1912 a hydroelectric power plant with two turbines in the valley town of Brannenburg, the train takes to the mountain ride. The power plant was designed so that the braking energy of the downhill passing train by feeding back for the simultaneous ascent of the second train could be exploited. Great 30 minute ride with some stunning views and another special feature: the maximum slope has 23.7 percent. About 6, 5km of the 7, 6 km line rack and pinion drive. Some cramped, but also baby strollers and wheelchairs come with, very helpful staff!
