Germany: Zugspitze (Schneefernerhaus) - Germany's Highest Post Office

The Zugspitze at 2,962 m (9,718 ft) above sea level, is the highest peak of the Wetterstein Mountains as well as the highest mountain in Germany. It lies south of the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and the Austria–Germany border runs over its western summit. This nice Cover was cancelled at Germany's highest Post Office. On the Postmark you can see the Schneefernerhaus.  It is a former hotel in the Alps, that is now used as an environmental research station. It lies immediately below the summit of the Zugspitze at a height of 2,650 m and was opened on 20 June 1931.
