More About Bavarian Alps:

Bavarian Alps, German Bayerische Alpen, northeastern segment of the Central Alps along the German-Austrian border. The mountains extend east-northeastward for 70 miles (110 km) from the Lechtaler Alps to the bend of the Inn River near Kufstein, Austria. Zugspitze (9,718 feet [2,962 meters]) is the highest point in the range and in Germany. Subranges include the Wetterstein Range, Karwendel Range, and Nord Chain; the Austrian portion is also known as the North Tirol Limestone Alps.

To the south, the range’s steep wall overlooks the Inn River valley, whereas to the north its gentle slopes allow the grazing of cattle.

Tourism and winter sports are the region’s main activities. A large national park preserves the original Alpine landscape, plants, and animals from the steady encroachment of urbanization.

The highest peak in the Bavarian Alps and in Germany as a whole is the Zugspitze. It lies in the western part of the Wetterstein range and has a high Alpine character with its height of 2,962 m above NN as well as its two small glaciers. The peak is noted for its scenic beauty and for its winter (skiing) and summer (climbing) activities. There is a meteorological observatory on the mountain.
