I had a couple of weeks in Glencoe and the surrounding area last summer, with mostly good weather! The first outing was up the Glencoe Ski lift for views over the valley ( in case the weather made it impossible later – my view get high up the easy way in the sun ). Here are the images from the top of the lift and the short walks around it.
From Garmisch-Partenkirchen you can easily get cable cars up several impressive mountains. And with one unfortunately named Mount Wank – being English – you just have to go up that one! I did so on a dry – but cloudy day. This made the top of the mountain fairly eerie, as it was just above / level with the clouds at times. I of course got the cable car up
Whilst staying in Salzburg, it’s a short bus ride across the border to Berchtesgaden, a very touristy town in Germany. Here the scenery around is spectacular. On a nice bright day I visited the town and took the new Jennerbahn Cable car to the mid station up the mountain. The top station was not accessible, as they looked to still be working on the cable up. After a short walk
Mount Untersberg is an impressive mountain near Salzburg ( It’s the northern most massif of the Berchesgaden Alps ). It is easily accessible by cable car, a short distance from Salzburg. I visited it this year in late August for the first time, getting a bus from the hotel to the cable car station. From there it was a short ride to the mountain station. Great view can be had
