About Ehrwald

Ehrwald at 1225m is a small tyrolean village in the Wetterstein mountain chain of the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena, Austria. Originally a mining village, in 1926 the construction of the Tyrolean Aerial Tramway funicular (the ‘Zugerspitzebahn’) attracted the first tourists to the area. This wire ropeway was an engineering wonder of its day and for a long time held the world record for mechanically conveying people to the highest altitude. It runs a distance of 3,600m with an elevation of 1725m. It was overhauled in 1991 and remains a ‘must do’. The village of Ehrwald lies at the southern base of Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Germany - it is on the Austro-German border - and is a mecca for climbers and winter sports enthusiasts. Views towards the mountain are dramatic and the area is full of natural spectacles - lakes and waterfalls. In summer this is a wonderful place for walking and hiking. The best places to stay in Ehrwald are busy both during the winter and summer seasons, so if you want to be sure of a room, get organised and book early.
