This is my first time doing this kind of thing—I usually focus on writing about fashion and travel more than the photography—but the scenery at the Eibsee and Zugspitze in Germany were just too stunning not to dedicate their own post to!
I was honestly in awe when we got to the Eibsee. I had seen photos of the lake online, but I figured they were all edited images from professional photographers, so I kept my expectations in check. But wow! When we got there, the Eibsee exceeded all my expectations and then some. It was such a stunning landscape, and there weren’t many people visiting the area when we got there, so we got to truly soak in and experience all of the beauty this lovely lake had to offer.
Right by the Eibsee is Zugspitze, the tallest mountain in Germany. Seeing the mountain from below was pretty incredible and we got to savor these sights for quite a bit.
But being on top of the Zugspitze might have been my favorite experience of our entire trip, if not the year! Funnily enough, I almost didn’t even want to go up the mountain at all. The ticket for the train ride up the mountain was a very steep 50 euros. But after nearly half an hour of deliberation at the ticket center, we went ahead and splurged on the tickets! And I was sooooo glad we did. These views were unbeatable.
I’m from and still live in the Midwest of the United States, so I’m not used to being around mountainous areas and this was something quite different for me. But even my boyfriend Max, who’s surrounded by mountains where he lives and who has gone skiing quite a few times in Switzerland, was impressed.
If you’re headed to southern Germany, definitely budget in 50 euros for this top-of-the-mountain experience. I’ve yet to see anything quite like it.
