Zugspitz Adventure Museum

At the summit of the almost 3,000 m high Mt Zugspitze the interesting experiential world “Fascination Zugspitze” is located.

In Ehrwald a modern cable car starts to the top of Mt Zugspitze, highest mountain of Germany (2,962 m asl) - the Tyrolean Zugspitz Cable Car is the first cable car of Tyrol, already built in 1926. The altitude difference of 1,725 metres is done within only 10 minutes. Arrived at the top station a gorgeous panoramic view on four countries and the surrounding alpine world can be enjoyed.

But also a very special experiential world is located at the summit, the costs for the visit are included in the peak ticket “Erlebnis Zugspitze”. The “Fascination Zugspitze” interactive museum tells about the history of the mountain, the construction of the first cable car of Tyrol and about actual events. The highlights of the Zugspitz Adventure Museum (Zugspitz Erlebnismuseum) are a walkable map, a glass floor which allows an impressive look into the depth and the highest located 3D show of Europe. The exhibition is structured in four sections, called “Conquest of the Zugspitze”, “Views”, “Sensory Visions” and “Farewell to the mountain”.

The first ascent of Mt Zugspitze dates back to 1820, done by Josef Naus, about one century later the first cable car of Tyrol was built there. The high glass front of the Zugspitz Adventure Museum offers a fantastic view on the surrounding alpine world. Furthermore, in the winter season 2017/2018 the exhibition “BAHNORAMA anno 1926″ will be opened - the technology of 1926 will meet the highlights of Mt Zugspitze with interesting visualizations, views and elements. A real unique experience!
