Yes, it's the Zugspitz glacier ski area or "Zugspitzplatt"

Unfortunately there is no longer a glacier there.
There is a gondola from Austria and Germany. This is the gondola that starts in Grainau, Germany. The ski area in Garmisch is called "Garmisch Classic". The World Cup races are also held there in January.

I did a day sightseeing trip there back in 1982 from Innsbruck. Train to Garmisch, Zahnradbahn, then gondola to the Zugspitze. Still had the tiny border control booth on the peak back in those days.

I was thinking to exclude you from this round. :);)
For sure, you are right. I have been there end of July for a weekend.

:) Haven't been to Filzmoos itself, but have been regularly past that region, and the view of that peak is fairly well known.

:thumbs:That's the one, Naxos Town.

One of the favourite islands of the dozen or so I saw on a 2015 trip. Partly because our yacht was docked at the jetty of the town where you wanted to be (unlike the other 6 or 7 Cyclades islands that were part of the sailing trip) for restaurants and bars, and partly because it was the only one where I got to hire a car for a day to see plenty of the island. The last two pics were taken from where we were docked.

Easy to fly there from Athens for those without the time to get there by sea.

it's better by boat, like all of the islands
one exception for thrillseekers: my family's home island - Kastelorizo - has an amazing airstrip that is about one metre longer than the minimum to land the 16-seater that goes there, with a cliff at the end



actually, approach by sea is still better
