What you can expect

Ride to the top of the Zugspitze after journeying through the beautiful countryside of southern Bavaria. Enjoy the sight of the impressive Ettal Abbey—one of the largest Benedictine houses—en route. From the highest mountain in Germany, admire stunning views of nearby glaciers.

As you travel south from Munich towards the Austrian-German border, marvel at the tranquil Bavarian landscape, before arriving at Ettal Abbey. See the splendid Baroque architecture and hear how its large community of monks thrives here.

Continue to the banks of Lake Eibsee to board the cable car to the summit of the country's tallest mountain, the Zugspitze. Towering over the region at nearly 10,000 feet (3,000 m), it is a majestic sight. From the top, your view of the Alps is extensive; gaze out on peaks from 4 different countries. Look out over the slopes beneath you to glimpse some of Germany's largest glaciers.

Take a meandering trip down the mountain's famous cog railway to the valley floor, where you're ready for your drive back to Munich, refreshed from a day in the Bavarian air.
