A trip to this mountain top in Bavaria is definitely well worth your while. You can take a unique cable car that overcomes a 1,950 m height difference. It actually starts near the gorgeous mountain lake Eibsee and takes its passengers to the mountain top at 2,962 m. In 2017 one more cable car will be opened to transfer even more people—the current capacity is only 45 people. At a height of 2,962 m above sea level, you'll have all of Germany on your hand. This is the highest peak of the country and it opens a spectacular view over 400 mountain peaks in 4 different countries. Some of the best views open to you from the AlpspiX viewing platform. This mountain is also the highest ski resort in the country with over 20 km of natural snow coverage during 6 months of the year. You can also find an igloo village and two toboggan runs. This is a perfect destination for skiers, boarders, and any nature lovers.
