Garmisch-Partenkirchen

4.4
Mountains · Wildlife Areas · Ski Areas
Nestled within the Bavarian Alps, Garmisch-Partenkirchen offers a classic mountain feel along with world-class winter sports. Chosen as the site of the 1936 Winter Olympics, the towns of Garmisch and Partenkirchen were merged into one on the orders of Adolf Hitler, and have remain a single conglomeration ever since. Despite that, both sides of the city today retain distinct identities, separate from one another. Often thought of as a sleepy mountain area, Garmisch-Partenkirchen is in fact a regional center for shopping, dining, nightlife, and traditional crafts. The city remains also a center for sport long after its Olympic heyday, maintaining fantastic facilities for ski jumping, downhill skiing, and more. Take the guesswork out of planning a Germany vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
