Flying High & Laid-Back

Tiroler Zugspitz Arena has quite a few dramatic features on offer: After all, its namesake, the Zugspitze, is Germany’s highest peak. Located right at the border, Tiroler Zugspitz Arena provides easy access to the rugged summit – views over four different countries included.

But at heart, Tiroler Zugspitz Arena is a laid-back place. It’s a place where you and your family can come to rest and enjoy a long, sunny afternoon lakeside. Where you can have an adventure in natural surroundings that feel truly pristine. Or where you can take a single-track mountainbike trail with some of the most beautiful views of the Alps. Tiroler Zugspitz Arena has a surprise in store for every visitor – no matter what they’re looking for.
