The Zugspitze, 2962 meters in height, is Germany’s highest mountain. According to sources, the name was probably derived from Zugbahnen or avalanche paths. Several towns also bear the names Zug, Zuggasse, Zugstick, Zugmösel or Zugwankel. First recorded ascent was in 1820, by Lt. Josef Naus, mountain guide Johann Georg Tausch, and servant Maier.
I think what we are seeing on the card is the Münchner Haus, an accommodation hut owned by the German Alpine Club. The house is being managed by Hansjörg Barth whose family have run the hut for three generations since 1925. Wah!! I wanna go there.
Thanks, Doris, for sharing this card with me 😉
