A great piece of engineering! A must do if one is comfortable with heights! The sweeping views of the area, standing on the platform are breathtaking! A must do when in Garmisch!

Very sturdy, so don't be afraid. You won't regret the views. Take a coat even on a sunny day, there's quite a wind chill.

Standard cable car/train combo from Garmisch includes assent to the viewing platform. Views to the east, north and west stretch for miles, while to the south Alpspitz and Hochblassen and immediately west, Waxenstein dominate - quite dramatic, but not for people who don't like heights!

We didn't buy a ticket to travel to the viewing platform itself, but we visited it on the day we were skiing in the Garmisch Classic area. Walking out over the very steep drop is a bit nerve-wracking if you don't like heights, but the...More

We purchased a ticket that included 3 cable car rides & a walk in between. OMG for the novice on ski slopes, the walk which takes an hour is nerve racking. The viewing platform is a sight to behold. In spite of being stressed by...More

No disappointment here. A little pricey but you get fantastic views. Our day was a little foggy at times but the platforms still provided good vantage points. The cable car rides were also great. Be prepared to hike a little. Be prepared for cold temps...More

Nice views and a steep drop just below your feet, certainly not the place for people who are afraid of heights. Getting there is a bit expensive. If you have to choose between Zugspitze and AlpspiX go Zugspitze.

There are several ways to visit and experience the mountains around Garmisch but the cable car up Alpspitz is certainly a good option. Its cheaper and quicker than the train and the views are just as stunning and less often in the clouds! The metal...More

The hike is about 5 hours in a reasonable pace. The trail starts at the Alpspix platform and descends towards the gorge. There is a cable car up to Alpspix and that's the fastest way up. You should park the car near the... More
