The Wendelstein offers nice views of valleys and Alps and the Bergbahn is neat way to get there... but, I found it VERY expensive at 34€/pp

Traveled up with some of my mates on a short visit. Lovely safe old train and you can get some terrific views on the journey up and down. The price to use it has risen very much over the years.
