Walking from Bayern to Tirol on the Zugspitze, Austria

We were surprised that on the top of the Zugspitze in Germany, you also find the Austrian border. They built a small bridge with a restaurant on the Austrian side in Tirol. When you look in the direction of Austria you only see snow and high mountains. On the German side you see the valley. We couldn’t resist and had a snack in the panorama restaurant.

We waren verrast dat op de top van de Zugspitze in Duitsland de Oostenrijkse grens ligt. Ze bouwden een kleine brug met een restaurant aan de Oostenrijkse kant in Tirol. Als je in de richting van Oostenrijk kijkt zie je enkel sneeuw en hoge bergen. Aan de Duitse kant zie je de vallei. We konden er niet weerstaan iets te eten in het panorama restaurant..

  1. Amazing place, amazing photos. The Alps should be a wonderful place to see and photograph. And that strategic point, the border between Germany and Austria ... Thank you for sharing, I enjoyed seeing these photos.
