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 views are well worth it.

We were lucky to be there on a gorgeous day - blue skies and no clouds to be seen. We got great views over Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the surrounding mountains.

Well worth a visit, especially if the weather is good!

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 the walk we absolutely loved the whole experience and would highly recommend this tour.

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 at the top.

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 walkways are fun and offer a thrill if afraid of heights.
