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”.
