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, the Tyrolean Zugspitz Cable Car starts to the top of Mt. Zugspitze, the highest peak of Germany (2,962 m a.s.l.). Built in 1926, it was the first cable car of Tyrol - today, the modern lift facility can transport up to 1,000 passengers simultaneously. At the top, a gorgeous panoramic view on four countries and the Zugspitz Adventure Museum at the mountain station awaits you.

The permanent exhibition "Fascination Zugspitze" of the interactive museum (Zugspitz Erlebnismuseum) tells about the history of the mountain, the construction of the first cable car of Tyrol, and about actual events. Its high glass front offers a fantastic view on the surrounding alpine world. The highlights of the Zugspitz Adventure Museum are 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: "Conquest of Mt. Zugspitze", "Views", "Sensory Visions" and "Farewell to the mountain". Right next to it there is the Snow Crystal World which is freely accessible.

Some years ago, as a complement, the exhibition "BAHNORAMA anno 1926" was inaugurated at the valley station: The technology of 1926 meets the highlights of Mt. Zugspitze with interesting visualizations, views and elements. By the way, its first ascent dates back more than two centuries. It was on August 27, 1820, when Josef Naus reached the top for the first time.
