The Beautiful Town Of Garmisch-Partenkirchen In Germany

In 1936, the German towns of Garmisch and Partenkirchen were joint together to create more hotel rooms for the 1936 Winter Olympics. The town is located at the base of the Zugspitze, the country's tallest mountain that reaches high more than 9,000 feet, making it perfect for skiing and for other winter sports.

Even though Garmisch-Partenkirchen has been combined for years, you can still see the distinct differences between the two with Garmisch's modern look and Partenkirchen's fresco-filled, cobblestone streets. Despite the differences, the town as a whole is truly one of Germany's majestic must-sees.
