One of the longest climbing routes in Germany

Wild and demanding, that's how the "Eisenzeit" presents itself on the Zugspitze. With a wall height of 1,200m and a total of 2,000Hm, the Eisenzeit is also one of the longest climbing routes in Germany. The difficulties do not exceed the IV degree of difficulty, but nevertheless the overall requirements as well as the overall experience are very high.
