Wetterstein

Description

Wettersteingebirge, Zugspitze

The busy Wettersteingebirge on the border of Germany and Austria is home to Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze (2962 m). Those who choose one of the two beautiful Klettersteige to reach the top, will arrive in an enormous crowd, because the summit is crowned by a "hut" (say entertainment center) which can be comfortably reached by cable car, dragging up and down hundreds (if not thousands) of tourists every day. Nonetheless, the views are beautiful.

In Germany, one speaks of the Werdenfels region, with Garmisch-Partenkirchen in its center. The area includes parts of the Ammergauer Alps and Estergebirge.

Wetterstein is sandwiched between two popular Austrian-German mountain passes: the Fernpass in the west and the Scharnitz Pass to the east. These passes are well known to holidaymakers. The area in between is interesting for climbers among us. The limestone (Wetterstein is part of the Northern Limestone Alps) here is particularly harsh: Wettersteinkalk. Walking is possible too, well catered for by the many huts, but you should have a good condition. You can make things easier by making use of the frequent cable cars. There are also quit a few Klettersteige (secured climbs) throughout the area, so you can move safely through the attractive rock scenery.
