Nestled within the Bavarian Alps, Garmisch-Partenkirchen offers a classic mountain feel along with world-class winter sports.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Altstadt (Old Town) Mittenwald and Burgruine Eisenberg. Visit Burgruine Hohenfreyberg and Altstadt von Fuessen for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Wies Church (in Steingaden), Fussen (Museum der Stadt Fussen & Kalvarienberg) and Schloss Hohenschwangau (in Hohenschwangau). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Chocolate Factory Barbara Kronner, explore the historical opulence of Linderhof Palace, take in the awesome beauty at Zugspitze, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Peter und Paul.
