How to describe a village that is so charming, different from every little place I’ve been in Europe.
I’ve had Mittenwald, in Germany, in my bucket list for many years and when I had the opportunity to go there, I wasn’t disappointed at all.
The little village is around 65 miles (105km) south from Munich, almost at the border with Austria.
Located in the middle of the German mountains, near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Mittenwald is quite remarkable for the impressive paintings on the exterior walls of the houses.
The paints are so beautiful that it’s just lovely to walk around the village and appreciate it.
The town is also renowned for the manufacture of violins, cellos and violas, which began in the mid-17th century by the Klotz family of violin makers.
My friends and I went on a Sunday and almost everything was closed aside from a few cafes and restaurants. However, we could see that the town is full of bars, restaurants, small shops, and so forth.
From what I’ve learned, the busiest month for tourism in Mittenwald is August and September, and during the wintertime, February can be a bit busy as well.
So, don’t forget to include Mittenwald in your itinerary. You will be amazed by this lovely place!
Have an excellent day!
Also, to finish off, I had to post these beautiful pictures of the scenery we had while we were driving from Innsbruck to Mittenwald.
