    A must do in Garmisch-Partenkirchen!
    I went up twice (cable car is amazing!) The first day (Saturday) was ski trip, but was snowy and visibility was poor. Thus, I returned up on Sunday morning, hoping for sun, and was not disappointed. The view is spectacular. A banana, danish, and a coffee at the ski lodge will run about 8 Euros, but is very good. Rode the cog train back to Grainau where you change to a train that takes you back to Garmisch-Partenkirchen station, making stops at Garmisch Classic, Alpspitz, and Hausberg.

    Tips for getting there from Garmisch.
    A cool experience and one of the highlights of a trip to Garmisch. €61 per person for the train trip from GaPa is of course expensive - a possibility to save is to drive to Eibsee and buy tickets up from there. I found the English instructions and map on the flyer a bit unclear, so here's the way to do it: Take the train from GaPa all the way up to the Gletscher (glacier) plateau, do not get off at Eibsee where many do. (Exception: If you don't like tunnels). From the glacier (which has some sights / often better visibility than the very top) take the cable car up to the summit. For the way down, take the other way: Cable car down to Eibsee and from there the train back to GaPa. Of you found my review helpful I would appreciate your vote
