Four countries in one day

Grainau, BY, Germany
21 Kudos
Ok, so maybe we did not go into each country that day - we only were in two, Germany and Austria), but since we lucked out and got to the top of the zugspitze on a clear day, we were able to see four different countries from our vantage point - Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland. Being on top of the highest peak in Germany certainly has its advantages. Besides being able to see into these countries, you are able to see over 400 different peaks from here. The view is the most amazing one I have ever had in my life and I would gladly pay the money again to see the break taking beauty of the Bavarian Alps from on high.

The lake is absolutely beautiful. Take the hike around the outer shore.
You will find the cogwheel here that will take you to the top of the zugspitze.
The highest peak in Germany. You can see into four countries from the top if you are there on a clear day.
