What You Can Expect

Ettal Monastery and Zugspitze Day Tour from Munich

Ettal Monastery, Germany

Departing Munich at 10:15am, you start your day with a visit to Ettal Monastery. Here you can get a glimpse of the lives of the Benedictine monks living at the monastery. Building of the monastery began in 1330 and due to the dedication and hard work of the resident monks, and at times knights, the structure is in pristine condition.

After your visit of the monastery, you will head to the highest peak in Germany, the Zugspitze which soars to 9,788 feet (2,962 meters). From Eibsee, you take the cable car to the summit of the mountain where, on a clear day, you can see the peaks of hundreds of Bavarian Alps mountains in Austria, Switzerland and Italy.

After you have enjoyed the panoramic views from the observation platform, you will descend the mountain onboard the Zugspitzbahn, a cogwheel train.

Gorgeous! Both the monastery and mountain are breathtaking. The visibility wasn't great but we still have a wonderful trip and played in snow in early July!

What a great day. Gunter our travel guide was very knowledgeable and fun. The trip was well coordinated and ran very smoothly. We lucked out on weather and had a clear day at the summit.
