On Tuesday we made a trip to the "Alpspitze" in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. After arrival in the fog we took the cable car up the mountain and into the sun. Wonderful views and only a few hikers were our reward. At the base of Alpspitze peak at the mountain station Osterfelderkopf (2030 m) , visitors will find the AlpspiX viewing platform hovering 13 meters (42 feet) over an empty void in the shape of an 'X' with two protruding platforms. From the station we walked down to the Hochalm (1705 m). After a fabulous lunch we headed back home.
