Tiroler Zugspitz Arena Region

Mighty mountains crowned by Germany’s highest summit! The Tiroler Zugspitz Arena is the perfect holiday region for visitors in search of outdoor activities and spectacular views.

Surrounded by four majestic mountain chains, the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena is the ideal holiday region for hikers, mountaineers and all those who simply love being out and about in nature. To the north lie the Ammergau Alps, to the west the Lechtal Alps, to the south Mieming Mountains and to the east the Wetterstein Mountains. The region is crowned by the Zugspitze, at 2,962m Germany’s highest mountain and the highest point in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena. The area, which is home to the northernmost glaciers in the Alps, boasts seven charming villages dotted along the valley floor, the largest of which is Ehrwald.

Seven ski resorts, lakeside hikes and mountain fires

Whatever the season, the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena offers plenty of attractions and activities. In winter there are seven small ski areas with a range of pistes catering for all abilities, from the Zugspitzplatt at almost 3,000m to the Ehrwalder Alm and Berwang ski areas. Cross-country skiers will find a large network of well-maintained trails, some of which can be used free of charge. Among the main attractions during the summer months are the deep blue mountain lakes and the many hiking paths. One popular walk leads up to the Coburger Hütte hut and the nearby Lake Drachensee, at 1,910m altitude the highest lake in the region. Other summer attractions include the Panoramabad Lermoos swimming pool, the summer rollercoaster in Biberwier and an excursion to Lake Heiterwanger with its sightseeing boats. Around the summer solstice in June the mountains are bathed in shades of red and orange as part of the Sacred Heart Fire celebrations, which are included on the UNESCO Immaterial Cultural Heritage List.
