Alpspitz, Garmisch-Partenkirchen

4.8
#2 of 40 in Winter Sports in Germany
Reaching 2,628 m (8,622 ft) at its peak, Alpspitz is famous for its pyramid-shaped summit and jagged crags. Hiking here is not for the timid; many of the routes are for more advanced mountaineers or experienced climbers, as the ascents are often steep and rocky--however, you can find a few paths appropriate for the whole family. Consider trying mountain biking, paragliding, or even sliding down the mountain on a 1,000 m (328 ft) long slide. The Alpspitzbahn offers a ride up for those who don’t wish to conquer the mountain on foot. Our Garmisch-Partenkirchen itinerary app makes visiting Alpspitz and other Garmisch-Partenkirchen attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • we went there for skiing, and enjoyed every minute of it - the whole area is well maintained and nicely organized  more »
  • A beautiful mountain. Close has great views of the Alpspix mountain station. For this you should be afraid of heights. At the ticket, the high country is cross railway railway with this and that. Our tip for the Hochalm gondolas from there in about 30 minutes to the Kreuzeck. From there by train back to the Valley.

  • Impressive cable car ride, Nice Summit station - super: AlpspiX platform over the abyss! Impressive views down to Garmisch and up to the Zugspitze. Great option: tour with two other railways in combination. Schön.

  • Heaven on this earth. 2600m above the sea level. You will love this place.
  • Perfect place with nice views in sommer or winter...
  • Top, Ausichtsplattform
  • A fairy tale ... cost of lift ok. 30, at the top of the restaurant, shops, and no views ... back possible the same queue or go down a few hundred metres down-approx. 30 minutes-back another queue in the price of the same ticket for the parking is not the entire kilometer from the main queue-if someone feels on the strength can enter the Alpspitze, ok. 2-3 hours from upper station

  • Beautiful views, even when our visit to the relatively limited slip. It is such a Northern gateway to the Alps. Via ferrata, we went alone with his girlfriend at the end of September, so it was a bit of snow and while we are on the way to the foundling hospital relatively few (snack, enjoy), we climbed up for less than three hours, instead of the front, 1.5 h. Ground path Nordwandsteig we unfortunately due to snow not found, so return was again down via ferrata. However, the best output and relegation was that we were on the entire mountain for yourself!
