The highest mountain in the country, Zugspitze will easily become one of your favourite places in the world. At 9,700 feet, this peak is covered in deep snow almost half the year. At the top, the sensational panorama opens up to reveal legendary views of 400 mountain peaks in four countries! Besides the epic scenary, Zugspitze offers an igloo village, the highest ski resort, two toboggan runs and the country’s highest beer garden.
Sure we have a breakfast opportunity at the place where we are staying, but the market is so inviting. Just off of Marienplatz, one will find a large outdoor market where vendors are selling goodies that range from farm fresh produce to the cutest little straw animals you can imagine. In the center of all of this is the Maypole, suitably decorated with steins of beer, pretzels, and other Bavarian treasures. Off to the side of the open-air market is a more sumptuous upper scale place to tickle your senses. There are cheese shops, bakeries, chocolate and wine shops all presenting their wares worthy of salivating over. Yes, I went off my diet for a chocolate croissant and a coffee. It was worth every morsel; the flaky crust was buttery rich and the chocolate was as thick as a candy bar. I could hear my waist expanding with every bite.
