Grainau Transportation

    I highly recommend different modes of transportation to/from the summit. Take the cogwheel train from Grainau to the Sonn Alpin station at 2600m and then a short cable car ride to the summit. Then on the way down take the cable car down to the Eibsee. It's a short 3 minute walk back to the train station - or do it in the reverse order.

Grainau Warnings and Dangers

    While it may be really hot down in Grainau, bring a long pair of pants and a jacket with you. While I didn't need them (growing up in Northern Michigan makes you immune to cold), I notice a lot of people with jackets and long pants....It was 35C at the base, and I would estimate it was about 18C at the summit.

    Yes it's July, yes that's snow and ice

Grainau Off The Beaten Path

    When arriving at the Sonn Alpin station, which is the endpoint of the cogwheel train, wander off and find a secluded spot to do some deep thinking or to just enjoy the scenery.

    Ommmmmm

    Drifting silently, effortlessly, above the Zugspitze - a glider is a fantastic way to see the peak... I watched this glider do circles above the peak and was very jealous

    Like a bird

    You can either take the cable car to the summit from the Sonn Alpin or you can hike the last 400m. Are you feeling frisky ???

    Equipment: Good hiking shoes, a helmet, climbing gear...
