The train going to the top of Germany, Zugspitz-Zahnradbahn

This week we will write a few more times about snow, ice, mountains, sun and a lot of fun. Yesterday, we took the train which is called the Bayerische Zugspitzbahn and Zahnradbahn from Garmisch-Partenkirchen. At the train station you already see wall paintings and nice garden decorations for which Garmisch-Partenkirchen is famous. We start at 707m altitude and the end station of the train is at 2600m. I had to take pictures from behind the window but I was still fascinated to see the landscape change, more and more snow, less trees until we dived into the tunnel which took us to the end station. This was a rather long but beautiful train journey.

Deze week gaan we nog een paar keer schrijven over sneeuw, ijs, bergen, zon en veel plezier. Gisteren namen we de Bayerische Zugspitzbahn en Zahnradbahn trein van uit Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Aan het station kon je al muurschilderingen en versierde tuindecoraties zien die zo kenmerkend zijn voor deze stad. We beginnen de rit op een hoogte van 707m en het eindstation is op 2600m. We konden enkel foto’s nemen van achter het raam maar het was zeer fascinerend om het landschap te zien veranderen, meer en meer sneeuw, en minder bomen, tot we tunnel inreden voor de laatste klim naar het eindstation. Het een lange treinreis maar een mooie rit..

  11. Must have been a wonderful day out. Our children would love to see snow, especially if you could take a train ride and watch the changing country-side too.

  12. Oooh we would love that trip. Great shots through a window. I've been catching up with your posts. I've had visitors lately. The bus crash was terrible, our thoughts are with the families.
