Gardens and Castles of Germany V: Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Innsbruck

Discussion in 'Wanderlust and Travel' started by Pa, Jul 28, 2009.

  1. After our day touring the castles (See part IV), we stopped in the ski village of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

    We spent two nights at the Gasthof Frauendorfer:

    The window of our room afforded a beautiful view over the rooftops to the Zugspitze, the highest point of Germany

    Next day we were up early for a day trip to Innsbruck, just over the border in Austria. Unfortunately Mother Nature had a wet day planned, so we began in St. Jakob's church

    We then got out the umbrellas to see the main square and the famous "Goldenes Dachl", or golden roof

    That evening we returned to Garmisch for another great meal, this time in our hotel, and accompanied by Bavarian dancing.

    great stuff, jim. looks like an awesome trip so far, can't wait to see the rest of germany. thanks again for sharing.
     
  3. A very Bavarian looking episode :smile:
    The view at the Zugspitze is amazing (for me from the flat lands) although I find the roof tops not very attractive. (not your fault)
     
  4. Thanks, Henry. Only Munich and Berlin to go on this trip (plus a day-trip to Salzburg, Austria).

    Yup, Bavarian it is. And you're right about the rooftops. I debated about including that photo but it was the only decent image of the Zugspitze in the lot.
     
  5. Love the photos! It's interesting to look at things I see pretty often from someone elses eye.

    #3 is definitely my favorite. The contrast just catches my eyes.

    Thanks for sharing,

  7. Thanks, Cole. I would feel the same thing about a German's view of Virginia!

    Thanks, Rosa.

    I don't know how I missed seeing this segment of your trip. I'm glad I did though, and as usual, the photos were superb. The one of St. Jakob's Church is amazing.

    Well done, Jim!
     
  11. Great photos which bring back a lot of memories. We used to go skiing in Garmish when I was stationed in Germany in the 60's and took my wife there in 74 for vacation. Much of it looks the same, will have to get the projector and old Kodachrome slides out to night and compare. But dosen't look likes its changed very much, and I have shotos of a lot of the sme buildings. Keep them comming.
