Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Our last night before joining the land-tour group was spent in Germany, in the resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

On the way there, from Munich, we stopped at Ettal Abbey, a beautiful Benedictine monastery.

One thing I noticed was that the monastery gift-shop sold not only wine but also beer. It was a pretty great gift-shop!

hotel zugspitze

We stayed at Hotel Zugspitze, which is named after the highest Alps peak in Germany.

I really wanted to take the cog-wheel cable up to the peak, but at 49.50 euro per person (about $126 total) … on second thought… no thanks!

hotel dining

I can just image how packed this sweet hotel must be during the popular ski season.

hotel fresco

Just as in Oberammergau, many of the buildings are covered in beautiful frescoes.

This little boy was one of my favorites.

And you’re not in a Bavarian town until you’ve found the Maypole

Throughout Bavaria, we saw men wearing lederhosen.

But nowhere near as often as we saw in Garmisch.

businessmen

As we sat at the beer garden, this businesswoman and group of businessmen sat next to us. The woman and three of the men wore business attire and two of the men were in lederhosen.

Yep, Garmisch-Partenkirchen is one perfectly picturesque and charming Bavarian town!
