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.
Most amazing views!!! Great snack areas at the end of each ride. The walk from 2nd to 3rd car was not short! Very long & difficult for some. Would have liked more accurate description. more »

Is only recommended. A ticket costs less than 30 euro. The prospect of super and very nice hiking trails.
The cable car ride to the top of Alpspitze is a breathtaking experience. The view from the top is beautiful. The area at the base of the mountain is also very scenic and can be explored by bike or the charming cogwheel train.
Wonderful scenic spot to be
