From Hoher Kranzberg Although Alpspitze isn' t among the highest mountains of the Wetterstein Gebirge it has a glamorous and famous name. This is due to its impressive north face and Zugspitze looking not as spectacular from Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Alpspitze even looks a little bit higher than Zugspitze. The pyramid like shape of the north face is simply stunning and looks steep enough you wouldn' t expect a relatively easy route through it. The summit offers a breath taking view of Garmisch-Partenkirchen with the classic summit shot showing the summit cross above Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Additionally you have a splending view of the Höllental from far above. Furthermore the view to the north is amazing. On bright days you may even see Munich with Frauenkirche and Olympiaturm and cities beyond. The first ascend was propably done via the east slope by J. Burger in 1825. The summit cross of Alpspitze was installed in 1946 by Richard Weber, Kaspar Jocher and the Kopling family.
