On Top Of the World

The next part of our adventure took us to the highest mountain in the Bavarian Alps. The Zugspitze is 2,962 meters (9,718 feet) high. To get to the top we took a gondola all the way to the top. At the top is also the border between Germany and Austria.

This picture is Ron and I on the Austrian side (Tirol). It was snowy and cold up there but we warmed up with some great wheat beer and french fries!

The views at the top were amazing and indeed it feels like you're on the top of the world. The ride up to the top was a little scary, but it was really smooth.

The platform at the top is also used for scientific purposes and does major research in the field of air quality and pollution.
