Zugspitze, Highest Peak in Germany

We almost visited Zugspitze last 2006. We decided not to go because it was very foggy at that time. You won't see anything if you ride with the train that is going up there. Imagine that was summer as we went there but it was still very foggy. One of these days we are going there again. Would you think there are Blackberry plants growing up there? I'll let you know guys if there are really some...hehehe..just kidding...sorry not a good shot is a little info about Zugspitze which is 2,962 meters high..wheewww so high!!

The Zugspitze is the highest mountain in Germany. It is located at the Austrian border in the town of Grainau of the district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria. On the Austrian side is the town of Ehrwald in the district of Reutte, Tyrol. There is a cog railway (Zugspitzbahn ) leading from the tourist resort of Garmisch-Partenkirchen to the peak. There are also two cable cars that go to the peak from the base: one ascends from the German side of the mountain at the Eibsee (Eibsee Aerial Tramway), and the other ascends from Austria (Tiroler Zugspitzbahn ). The peak is regularly crowded with tourists.
