The Environmental Research Station Schneefernerhaus - Home of GAWTEC
The Environmental Research Station Schneefernerhaus is a high alpine station located at 2650 m.a.s.l on Germany's highest mountain: Zugspitze.
 
 
The Schneefernerhaus (engl.
the house at the snowy glacier) was build in 1930 as a hotel and turned into a research station in 1998. It houses a GAW global station and since 2001 the GAW Training and Education Centre.

The Schneefernerhaus is situated in a steep flank just below the summit (in the right top corner of the picture you can see the some buildings on the summit at 2962m.a.s.l.). The station is reachable by it's own cable car from the skiing resort at the slopes of the Zugspitz-Platt.
