The top of the Zugspitze, the ultimate beauty of the Alps

On the top of this German mountain in the Alps they placed a golden cross indicating the 2962m mark. The blue sky and snow make it very special. A few hundred meters lower, you see several skiers on the slopes. Kilometres away on the German side, is the Eibsee located, which is still frozen.

Op de top van deze Duitse berg in de Alpen hebben ze een gouden kruis geplaatst die een hoogte van 2962m markeert. De blauwe lucht en sneeuw maken het allemaal zo mooi. Een paar honderd meter lager zie je skiërs op de pistes. Kilometers verder aan de Duitse kant ligt de Eibsee die nog steeds dichtgevroren is..

  3. Góry w śniegu przepięknie wyglądają i maja piękne zdjęcia, ale ja już pragnę innych kolorów, wiosennych. Pozdrawiam.*** Mountains in the snow look beautiful and have beautiful pictures, but I already want other colors of spring. Yours.

  10. I was there a long time ago, but it was summer time. I don't think there was a cross when I went. I always enjoy seeing other ski terrain.

  18. A gold cross seems very appropriate. Amazing scenery and such a beautiful day! The blue sky is probably the only thing in common with Australia!!
