Zugspitzbahn & other lifts

Once you reach Garmisch-Partenkirchen you will want to access the slopes via the Zugspitzbahn and connected systems of cable cars and lifts.

The Bayerische Zugspitzbahn Bergbahn AG is located behind the Hauptbahnhof in Garmisch, about 2-minutes walk from the main arrival and departure tracks. Just walk under the tracks, away from the HBF and you will see it on your left as you step out into sunshine.

No fewer than eight cable cars and gondolas await you, giving you access to locations at differing altitudes. You have your choice of the Hausberg, Kreuzeck, Oesterfelder or Zugspitze. You cannot reach the Wank from here, so you will have to take a taxi from the HBF. The Wank is now closed during most of the winter months, except occasionally during peak holidays. It is open all summer and serviced from the Wank Bahn.

Travel on the Zugspitzbahn is free with a valid ski pass.
