This is a must do and a nice half day outing if you are not skiing up there. You need to pick a clear day to get the best of the views.

After several attempts, we had a clear sunny day. This was definitely worth the time and money. The views were amazing and the engineering marvel to complete this had me in awe. A great afternoon.

What an amazing experience. Big spacious restaurant on the Austrian side with lovely views and a small beer garden on the German side. The views were stunning. It's a must do for everyone.

That was our case. The ride up was sure an experience, though I had to keep my eyes closed from the half-way up as I am afraid of heights (and as getting closer to the station on the top, the cable car gets slower and...More

We traveled up the Zugspitze from the Austrian side (it's a bit less expensive than going from the German side and ends up in the same place) and had a great time. It was a little cloudy, so the views from the top weren't as...More

We were literally on top of the world. My wife and I and another couple took the back roads from South Tyrol (Northern Italy) to Ehrwald to catch one of the last Zugspitzbahn rides of the day. This trip was something I've always wanted to...More

I wouldn't know because I've been there only during the skiing season, but I would expect it to be possible to go up and down from 8 am until maybe 10 pm in this time of the year
