When we arrived at Mittenwald, we parked the car and proceeded to the old town.

Well, It was a sight to behold! So many building's all with Luftlmalereien paintings, it was just beautiful!

I guess you could say I was "goggled eyed" with all these very well done paintings.

The facades of many houses are decorated with wall paintings dating from the 18th century and later.

Most of the colourful and artistic frescoes are based on biblical themes.

Mittenwald is also one of the most important centres of violin making in the world.

The Old town is full of pavement cafes & souvenir shops.

I couldn't think of a better place for that cup of coffee, than in this old area!

We really enjoyed our time here!

It is a must see if you want to see a lot of Luftlmalereien paintings over a compact area, and there are more in the nearby town of Wallgau

    Isn't Mittelwald fun? We had a grand time looking for musical symbols on all the painted buildings. Did you notice the treble clef at the top of the church tower? Love it . . .
