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.

When choosing a home base for a week's worth of day tours in Bavaria and Tyrol, we landed on Mittenwald's Altstadt for it's storybook charm, central location and authentic Bavarian atmosphere. 16th century Hotel Alpenrose was the right choice near the foot of the Obermarkt pedestrian zone and iconic 14th century St. Peter und Paul Church. Mittenwald Altstadt provides the... More

Traveling through Upper Bavaria and after visiting Garmisch -Partenkirchen and Oberammergau we ended up in Mittenwald prior to cross the border to Austria. You might think of it as just another one beautiful town with painted house facades and church but it has to offer a lot more - nicely located between two mountain chains, options for hiking and climbing...

The decorations on the buildings are interesting. The pedestrian area has a stream running through it. There are inevitably touristy shops, but good bakeries and restaurants.
