The Wendelstein is a 1838 metres high mountain in the Bavarian alps lying about 60km southeast of Munich. The summit can be easily accessed either with the cable car from Osterhofen or the rack railway from Brannenburg. About 100 metres below the summit is the Berggasthof inn with a large terrace serving hot and cold meals. On the summit there is a viewing platform offering an excellent view of the northern Alps and of Bavaria, an observatory, a weather station and a broadcast relay station. Easy hiking trails lead from the valley up to the summit of Mt Wendelstein. In winter it is possible to ski on the slopes of Mt Wendelstein.
