Must walk around and see all the beautiful houses. The altstadt is full of life and colors. The stores are well integrated with the old constructions. If you're not shopping, half hour is enough to walk around.

If you want to see what Bavaria looked like in the 1800's visit this beautiful town set in an Alpen valley. The architecture, faux windows, food, dress and people are a pure delight. Walks through the woods surrounding the town are filled with visual delights. And you're a cog-rail ride away from the highest mountain in Germany: the Zugspitz. Don't... More

What a lovely town. Lots of great shopping and great restaurants. We had a really fun time walking Leutaschklamm / Geisterklamm (see separate review). So many picture perfect spots in the city. So much to do.

Spent New Years in nearby Eschenlohe and found Mittenwald to be stunning on New Years Day. Not much open in the morning, so we had the beautiful town to ourselves for the most part. The stunning 14th century St. Peter und Paul Church was open and had a youth choir in their Bavarian traditional robes walking there, so it was... More

Mittenwald became known as the Village of a Thousand Violins and you can actually see the Craftsmen at work! Also there is a stream running through the centre of the Village and there is the blend of the old and the new. A very popular Tourist attraction and personally one of my own favourites. It also has the Bavarian decorated... More

We have seen photos of the active summer street scenes. Abundant flowers, but also abundant people. In December, you can see the town at your own pace and not be crowded. The Christmas market does not begin until the middle of the month, but there are enough in nearby towns that you can get all the gluhwein you can handle.

Wherever you go, you will see the alps as the backdrop for the city. Suggest you walk along the river, cross over and walk up the slope. The view will get better and better.
