The Zugspitze is Germany’s highest mountain. Since this winter season, it also boasts a reversible aerial tramway of superlatives. This ropeway has the greatest overall vertical rise of 1,945 m in one section, the world’s tallest lattice tower at 127 m and the longest unsupported rope span of 3,213 m. Every year, the Zugspitze attracts around one-half million visitors. With the new tram, they will now be able to reach the mountain quickly, even at peak periods. The new cabins have a capacity of 120 passengers – compared to just 44 on the old Eibsee tram.
