Waxenstein Mountain, Bavaria (Pic du Jour)

Waxenstein Mountain, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany

This is a south-facing view of Waxenstein Mountain taken this afternoon from the shore of the Riessersee lake in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. Kleiner, or smaller Waxenstein, to the right stands at 2,136m (7,007ft) while Großer Waxenstein reaches 2,277m (7,470ft).

The mountain is part of the compact Wetterstein Range shared between Germany’s Bavaria and Autria’s Tyrol which is dominated by the Zugspitze, at 2,962m (9,717ft) the highest peak in Germany.

Look for a series of posts about Garmisch-Partenkirchen beginning this weekend.
