Zugspitze is the highest mountain pick in Germany with its 2962 meters, its located next to the Austrian border, close to the town Grainau. A lot of people use the cable car or the cute "Zahnradbahn" (cog railway) to go up and enjoy the view. Some of the more sportive ones take advantage of the snowy pists. The ski resort is just next to the Garmisch-Partenkirchen, where the ski world cup 2011 is taking place right now!
Of course even at 2600m there is one "Maibaum"....to remind us that we are in Bavaria...on the way back town to the valley the moon was already on the sky!
