Zugspitze Peak

Photograph By Lorenz Holder

When it comes to numbers, the Zugspitze, at 2,962 meters (9,717 feet), is Germany's highest mountain. (To be fair, it is situated right at the German-Austrian border and also has a gondola going up from the Austrian side). Located in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, only an hour from Munich, it is often called the city's "home mountain."
