Fotoeins Friday: early snow over Eibsee lake in Oberbayern

Just below Riffelriss at a height of about 1600 metres (5200 feet), the downhill journey of the Bayerische Zugspitzbahn cog (rack) railway emerges from underneath the Zugspitze mountain tunnel with this view north towards Eibsee lake and various peaks on the other side. Here in Oberbayern (Upper Bavaria), spectacular views of the German Alps never seem to end, on the ground or at elevation. Compared to Zugspitze, Germany’s highest point at almost 3000 metres, some might label the surrounding 2000-metre formations as “hills”.

    Hi Henry. What a stunning shot. I’ve not been here, but definitely worth a visit.

      Hi and thanks, Nancie. The whole time in that part of Upper Bavaria was a … er … “travel gem”. 😉 Thanks for reading and for your kind comment!

    This pic’s spectacular! I can also see some mountains from my city but they’re not snowy yet… so I’ll look at yours meanwhile 🙂

      Hi and thanks, Lily! It’s that time of year again in the northern hemisphere, for mountains to come topped with their snow-white frosting. 🙂
