Climb the Zugspitze on Street View

You can now climb Germany's highest mountain in a new custom Street View tour from Zugspitze 360°. The tour consists of hundreds of panoramic images which allow you to virtually climb Zugspitze, from the foot of the mountain at Höllental all the way to the summit.

All the custom captured Street View images of the tour have been stitched together using the Google Maps API. This means that if you've ever used Google Maps before then you will easily be able to progress through the tour using Street View's familiar navigation arrows. The tour also includes a handy on-screen menu which allows you to quickly jump to different stages of this mountain tour.

As you progress through the stunning panoramic images of the Zugspitze you can also learn more about the mountain from a number of audio guides dotted along the route (in German).

As well as the amazing custom created Street View tour of the mountain Zugspitze 360° includes lots of useful information for anyone who wants to climb the mountain for real. This includes general information about the route & its highlights and track routes & tips which you can download.

Currently Zugspitze 360° has stage one of three stages which you can explore in Street View. Stages two and three will be released in the next few weeks.
