Comments / Route
A two day hike / climb to the highest point in Germany. No great views but a really exciting ascent with coffee and cake at the top.

A quick, single day, solo ascent, taking the cable car at 7:40 from Obermoose (1220m) and arriving at the Weiner Neustadthütte (2200m) at 10:10. Weather was okay, path well marked for short 100m ascent to the start of the via ferrata. Met no one else going up, just three people of their descent warning of snow field where axe/poles and crampons would be needed. Snow field was not so big, nor dangerous, but used crampons and poles. Six hours after departure arrived at the summit, spent a little time here before descending by cable car.
Munchen Hause to Zugspitze Summit, descent via Cable car and Rack railway.
