WENDELSTEIN is a mountain in the Bavarian Pre-Alps in Germany. It belongs to the "Mangfallgebirge" the eastern part of the Bavarian Pre-Alps. It is the highest summit of the same named range. From top you have a wonderful summit-view, because the Wendelstein stands more alone than the mountains around it. So it won´t astonished that it is one of the most visited sightseeing summits of this region. You can reach the summit also by train which starts in GROSSBRANNENBURG oder by cablecar from OSTERHOFEN nearby BAYRISCHZELL. On top there are a transmitter of the regional TV-station "Bayrischer Rundfunk", a observatory, a chapel and a meteorological station. The summit is very rocky and consists of lime.
