The history of the Zugspitz Resort

A historical journey

Our success story

It’s hard to believe: the Zugspitz Resort started out small too. In the mid-70s, our holiday paradise started out with just an apartment block and campsite. The infrastructure was subsequently optimised, expanded
and modernised until a new vitality world was added in 2010, followed by the exclusive guest bathhouse a year later.

The next turning point came in 2017/18 with the addition of the Comfort Deluxe pitches. And then a year later came some treats for the little ones in the form of the new kids’ water world with double competition slide, adventure pool and small children’s area. 2019 is a special year for the hotel, marking the
opening of the Zugspitz Resort complete with its new hotel building.
