    Hi,

    There are four of us heading to München this August. Three railstaff with FIP Coupons and one public rate. We quite fancy a trip on the Zugspitzbahn with possibly a wee trip one way on the cablecar (Eibsee Seilbahn).

    Any idea on the price for this? I take it there's no FIP discount but would a Bayern Länder Ticket offer any savings?

    I see there is also a annual "Wankpass" available!! :p

    The Bayern-Ticket availability (Geltungsbereich) PDF that I downloaded last week says the ticket is only valid from Garmisch as far as Grainau on the Zugspitzbahn:
    Their prices page at http://zugspitze.de/en/summer/preise/zugspitze doesn't show any part-distance fares.
    Seems to be cheaper (http://zugspitze.de/en/summer/preise/****) to get your jollies on "that other mountain", but of course you won't be as high.

    Edit: the nanny filter has filtered out a critical part of the last URL that I pasted.

    There used to have a link from the DB UK website to a ATOC document that said that FIP card holders are granted a reduction on the Zugspitzbahn.

    A hangover from the days when it was an OBB-operated line, I suppose.


    Please ignore my post on this: I'm muddling up the Zugspitzbahn (Germany) with the Schneebergbahn (Austria, south of Vienna). Both rack railways up mountains, both very scenic and worth a ride. I'll give trying to defend my faux pas and leave the room...
