Zugspitze Hotels

There aren't any hotels with private rooms on the slopes of the Zugspitze, but the village of Grainau has a good selection of hotels and guesthouses. (See Booking.com's Grainau hotel listings.) Most visitors stay in nearby Garmisch-Partenkirchen, which is Germany's most popular mountain resort.

If you're willing to share a dormitory with hikers and mountaineers, try the Münchner Haus from early May through the beginning of October. This Hütte of the Deutsche Alpenverein was built in 1897 and is near the summit of the Zugspitze.

The Campingplatz Zugspitze in Untergrainau is a convenient place to stay if you're traveling with a tent or camper van.
