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.
I really like the skiing here. High enough for consistent good snow. Nearly as high as the Zugspitze but not as busy and often quieter than the rest of the Garmisch Classic area. more »

Fantastic ride on the 🚠. Walking on the see through bridge was cool
A breathtaking view from up top. We went on a slightly cloudly/rainy day but the clouds cleared up occasionally allowing us to take amazing photos. Theres free parking at the bottom, and it gets quite chilly up top so bring some jackets. The tickets are pricy at 28Euros but I think it was worth every cent.
