Garmishch Partenkirchen is a nice little town, with a great attraction.
Garmisch-Partenkirchen is located at the foot of the Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Germany (2,962 m/9,724 ft), and is both one of the principal climatic health spas in the Bavarian Alps and Germany’s premier winter sports metropolis. The city hosted the 1936 Winter Olympics and the 1978 World Championship and offers pristine nature, secluded spots, cultural and culinary highlights, new experiences, relaxation, wellness, and upscale shopping. A wide range of sports is available in both summer and winter. You can also pamper yourself with spa treatments such as ayurveda, thalasso, natural hay baths, and numerous health therapies. Always nice to do, but unfortunatly we didn't have the time to do it. Maybe some time when we're on vacation in the neighbourhood in Berghtesgadenland where I definitly want to go some time!
The original ski jump was erected in 1924 on the Kochelberg Mountain.
I'd like to spend more time here in this surroundings, this was more an excursion from München for the afternoon but it's certainly worth visiting for a longer stay!!
