Interactive museum up the Zugspitze
Fascination Zugspitze: an interactive world with magnificent views
At the "Fascination Zugspitze" interactive museum you can experience Germany's highest mountain in all its variations and many facets, even if it's foggy, stormy or snowing. You can explore the following 4 areas in the museum:
The history and conquering of the Zugspitze
Right at the start the exhibition takes you on a journey through the history of the Zugspitze's development: from the first ascent of the Zugspitze by Josef Naus in 1820 to the building of the Zugspitze cable car in the 1920s and the modernisation in the 1960s to present day. The displayed exhibits include old photos and objects from the cable car's history.
Once the Zugspitze has been conquered with the aid of technology, visitors stand on the mountain's peak. When you enter the old entrance hall a floor to ceiling glass front opens up a unique view to you over the mountains surrounding the Zugspitze. The gallery with the gondola from the 1960s serves here as a viewing platform for the surrounding mountains and onto the Zugspitze massif's elevation model that is one floor below. From here you can interactively select the mountain groups that you can see from the Zugspitze and call up information using a control panel.
A three-dimensional multimedia presentation in the old Zugspitze cable car's cable room is another key highlight in the exhibition on the Zugspitze. The projection offering an exciting and unique form of presentation covers two floors. The unique film shows incredible pictures of natural spectacles on the mountain peak, from sunrise to sunset, of snow and wind, sun and rain.
Farewell to the mountains
Following the impressions on the peak, it is slowly time to say farewell to the Zugspitze again. Starting with another video projection, past a profile of the Tiroler Zugspitzbahn, you hike down to the valley again through different altitude zones.
