Wendelstein, Brannenburg

(100+ reviews on the web)
Mountain Nature / Park
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.
