The Zugspitze Glacier Cable Car (German: Zugspitz-Gletscherbahn) is a 1,000 metre long cable car on the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain. It was opened in 1992 and links the plateau of the Zugspitzplatt directly with the summit, 360 metres higher. Since the mountain station of the Bavarian Zugspitze Railway was moved from the Schneefernerhaus to the Platt, the Schneefernerhaus and the old cableways, which ran down into the valley from the Platt (the Hangbahn and alte Gletscherbahn) and up to the summit (Gipfelseilbahn), have lost their importance.
