Teddy on the Zugspitze

Ted's ambition has always to go to the top of the highest peak in Germany. He has always also wanted to drive a train. Two goals scored in one day then! Here he is at the start of the journey at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, at the controls of the Bayerische Zugspitzbahn!

And so onwards, and up and up and up until --- the highest teddy bear in Germany!

Yes, Ted has made it to the glacier on the top of the Zugspitze. Here he is checking out the local flora:

It's pretty amazing that anything can grow at this altitude. Presumably there must be insects at this height to fertilize them too?

Fearless Ted pushes on, and here he is right at the very pinnacle. You should see the drop just over those railings! (well, imagined drop, as today the summit is surrounded by cloud). He is at around 2,962 metres, which is the highest he has been (not including when on an airplane).

Ted is perhaps not the highest any teddy bear has been, as he finds a friend at the gift shop a bit lower down.
