Something new and exciting has just been added to the Garmisch-Partenkirchen-Zugspitze region, an area covered by my current guidebooks Daytrips Germany, Daytrips Bavaria, and Daytrips Austria.
The AlpspiX viewing platform juts out some 43 feet over the edge of an abyss, and it's 3,300 feet straight down to the Höllental Valley of Hell. Stroll out on it if you dare!
There are several ways of getting to it from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the Gateway to the Zugspitze Mountain and an easy daytrip from Munich by train or car. There are some good walking/hiking opportunities here, ranging from comfortable to somewhat strenuous. And, of course, great views towards Germany's famed Zugspitze.
