0007 GERMANY (Bavaria) - Bavarian Zugspitze Railway

I could’t explain why, but the receiving of that postcards produced me a great pleasure. Bavarian Zugspitze Railway (German: Bayerische Zugspitzbahn) is one of four rack railways still working in Germany, runs from the Garmisch-Partenkirchen suburb of Garmisch to the Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Germany. Built between 1928 and 1930 that railway was nominated in 2007 for an award as a Historic landmarks of civil engineering in Germany, which is not a small thing in a country with such tradition and performance engineering.
