Garmisch-Partenkirchen is quickly becoming one of our favorite places to visit. It makes for a wonderful weekend or you could easily use this as a home-base for a week-long stay (something we plan to do in the future). There is so much so do in this area no matter what the season. And you cannot beat the views! Surrounded by mountains, it is breathtaking each time you look up.
I asked several times while I was in Garmisch-Partenkirchen when the best time to come is -- and each time I was told September to mid-October because the weather is the best and you have lots of clear, sunny days. Thankfully, I was there at just that time and they told the truth - it was fantastic weather!
We like to go hiking and enjoy good meals - we walked through the Partnach Gorge and continued on UP the other side (not for the faint of heart!). I'm not much of a shopper but we did do some shopping, and we went to the top of the Zugspitze. We also visited nearby Mittenwald, which I highly recommend for a change of pace - same wonderful views and an equally wonderful town.
Garmisch is also a great central location for visiting King Ludwig II of Bavaria's three castles - Linderhof, Neuschwanstein, and Hohenschwangau. You can see from the beauty of this area why the king selected these mountains to build his homes.
Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a definite must-see on your bucket list.
- Pros:You can't beat the views and things to do!
