Wendelstein#

The Wendelstein is a mountain in the Bavarian part of the alps with a height of 1838m. From the head of the mountain one can have a bright view on the Alpine Foothills and down in the valley the mountain visible from the surroundings. So the Wendelstein is ranked as one of the most beautiful mountains of Bavaria.

There two possibilities to come comfortably on the mountain, one is with a cable railway and another is with a rack-railway which starts from the municipality Brannenburg. The rack-railway is more than 100 years old and was the first rack-railway of Germany built from 1910 – 1912. 1991 the railway was modernized and by this you can come within 30 minutes to the top of the mountain. It is used by people who like mountains, skiing and hiking. On the summit station you can stay in a restaurant, an observatory, a way to the top and a geological way and several ways down to station at the bottom.
