This is one of the most striking peaks in Bavaria which no doubt led to the resort development of Garmisch and Partenkirchen. While it is in the Wetterstein range, it stands before that range as a solo pyramid. The Alpspitze has many klettersteig (ferratas) as well as a klettergarten of rope routes.

The summit cross was set up in 1946 by Richard Weaver and Kaspar Yoke together with the Kolpingsfamilie of Garmisch

Getting There 

From Garmisch go west on the B23 (Zugspitzstrasse) and turn left onto Kreuzeckbahnstrasse, just past the Kaserne. Follow it and park at the Kreuzeckbahnhof. From here you can be real and take a number of trails making the grade into II or III, or just do what most do and take the Alpspitzbahn to treeline. You can also access some routes from the Hollental trail, or be superreal and come at it from the Reintal.

From the top of the Alpspitzbahn (Osterfelderkopf), follow the signs to the right toward the Alpspits ferrata. Once you see the initial ladder, and clip into the klettersteig, you can put your map away for the day (remember to look around though, the scenery is stellar). Once on top, look toward Garmisch, the trail down goes to the right. Takes about four to five hours to complete the circuit. Start early.Outstanding views of the Waxsteinen, the Zugspitze, and the Wetterstein range.WARNING: I...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
