The Zugspitze

The Zugspitze is Germany's highest mountain and provides some spectacular Alpine views. There are three different aerial lifts that bring visitors to the summit, and you can easily make it a day trip out of Munich.

The summit at 9,718 ft.

Telecom, weather and research facilities look like an art installation.

Tram station and restaurant.

The Austrian border runs exactly across the top of the mountain.

So in pre-EU days you had to show your passport to enter Austria.
