Arrival and Departure

Easy access and transport of heavy loads to UFS

Due to the facilities provided by the Bayerische Zugspitzbahn AG the UFS offers:

  • year round access 
  • year round transport of heavy loads independent of weather conditions

Access to the UFS is via the Tourist Station "SonnAlpin" and further on with the UFS Cable Car. This small cable car can transport about 90 persons per hour. (download: "How to get to UFS"). Heavy loads and special passenger trains reach the UFS directly and independent of weather conditions year round by a subsurface track siding of the Bayerische Zugspitzbahn (BZB). 

The UFS is an international research facility reserved for scientists and students who work here and for participants in conferences that are held here.
