Loved this tour, went again the second year in a row from Australia. Guide was fantastic and the bus was fresh and new each time. Views are amazing.
Fantastic views, excellent fun
Joel_N, Aug 2019
Booked through Viator on grey line tours from Munich to the Zugspitze with my family. The ride there was comfortable in a double-decker bus with large windows to see the scenery on the way, The cable car trip up the mountain was breathtaking, Up top, there was great views all around and fun to walk from Germany to Austria. My kids loved the part of time given in the lower section where they sled on the snow in August! There was plenty of time to take pictures and have fun. The cogwheel train return was interesting with nice views. Our tour guide Debbie was fun and interesting and gave us lots of information on the area.

Great trip

It was a wonderful tour. The guide was very friendly and well explained. Well organised and punctual.
Boring Guide
Susan_T, Jul 2019
This trip would have warranted 5☆ despite the mixed weather conditions but for the guide. I have never heard a guide talk so much and say so little so watch out for Peter.... The trip itself was spectacular but even in July it was 5°c with a cold wind. However, once the cloud lifted the views were to die for! We had over 2.5 hours at the summit, which was plenty of time to grab a bite to eat & take as many photos as we wanted. The trip down on the cog wheel train took 1hr 20 but was a really interesting trip & the train itself was a true feat of engineering! If you have the time - don't miss this trip!
Cloudy

Nice day; worth the trip
Heather M, May 2019
We had a good experience and trip to Zugspitze. The weather was a bit overcast so we couldn't see as far as we'd hoped, but it was still lovely. Overall, I think the time spent at the top could be shortened by 45min-1 hour; but the day was lovely. Our guide Arnuld, was pleasant and helpful, but not super engaging. He was a bit cranky upon our arrival. My group and another couple had been told to arrive in the morning by 10:15 (the Viator paperwork indicated that), but Arnuld was upset and shared that we were "supposed to be there at 10am." I am not sure of the mitskae's origin, but he left before 10:15am, so if anyone else was still arriving, he left them there!

Brian M, Oct 2016
The Monastery tour was a little disappointing. More of an in-and-out thing. We didn't get to see the brewery since it was closed, and there was a service going in the church, so it was a bit weird trying to go in to see how it looked. Zugspitze is quite the experience. Would recommend, but just be aware that the weather at that altitude is highly variable. Don't expect to see four countries... GO expecting to see some breath-taking mountain scenery, and then be really happy if you get a clear day and can see everything.
Beautiful tour and just the right...

Beautiful tour and just the right amount of time spent at each site. Elisabeth was informative and fun!
