Zugspitze: can I see Italy from here?

    Henry, your post makes me so very homesick right now, that’s where I spent part of my life , my aunt of 104 years, has lived in Garmisch , right at the foot of Zugspitze, and believe it or not I have never been up there. I hiked up the mountain next to it , Alpspitze some 40 years ago. My beloved father had passed with the view of the Zugspitze in 1991. Thank you for sharing.

      Hi, Cornelia, and thank you for your kind comment. I’m pleased the post and images have provided some warm memories of your family. I’ve also gone up to Alpspitze to have a look around in winter conditions. Unfortunately, I don’t ski nor do I snowboard 😅 I’d really like to go back during the spring to autumn period to visit Garmisch-Partenkirchen and these mountains in full green. Thanks again!

      There’s always so much to do in Germany, even in places I’ve already visited. I’ve been to Tegernsee in both summer and winter, and I would very much like to see the Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Oberstdorf areas in summer. To that end, I will take any recommendations for hikes. The great thing is that the GaPa website and their displays at the base stations to various cable cars show which hikes are open. The one obvious “flat” hike I would like to do is to walk along the Loisach river floor from Garmisch all the way to Grainau. And then there’s Partnachklamm, which I still haven’t done, and Wank, which I still haven’t gone up to have a look. Oh, did I mention that I would also like to visit Oberammergau? Hah, way too much, but not a bad problem to have.

      Hi, Charlotte, and thank you for your comment. These parts of the Alps are very easy to reach as you may well know; if you don’t, I believe you now have ideas for upcoming winter holidays! 😊 I also appreciate the time you’ve taken out of your busy schedule to stop by my blogsite. Have a great holiday season and all the best to you in the new year!
