painted houses of Garmisch
Favorite thing: Many of the houses in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, like many buildings in Bavaria, have unique paintings on the outside walls of the building. Some depict an event or animals and other paintings make the buildings look like they have things (windows, statues, etc.) that really are not there. It is fun to just walk around and look at all the buildings to see how creative the people are in decorating their homes.
In the summertime, another beautiful feature of these homes is all the flowerboxes bursting with colors. So beautiful! Go grab an ice cream and just walk around the town of Garmisch and enjoy the buildings around you.
where's he going?
Favorite thing: If you have some extra time - especially if you have small children - take a stroll around the park near the center of town. There are some interesting things at every turn, including a large mound of grass that has a turtle head, tail, and four legs! Very creative - the kids, both old and young, will get a kick out it!
Additionally, the park offers several models of local buildings as they looked in years gone by. Interesting to see how they made the roofs without nails by adding planks and rocks to the shingles.
The park is small so a stroll around it won't take too long -- perhaps grab a ice cream to enjoy while walking around.
