Mittenwald is a small, picturesque town in the Alps between the summits of Wettersteingebirge and Karwendel. It is an intimate resort with perfectly preserved historic buildings and a good base for active leisure.

The town is located around 15 km from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, where there are several dozen kilometers of ski slopes. Due to the distance from the tourist center of the region, it is calm here, which promotes rest, especially for people who do not like crowds and bustling tourist centers.

The advantage of Mittenwald is well-preserved buildings consisting of multi-story houses with facades decorated with paintings and wooden shutters. You can see them, among others on Obermarkt, Hochstrasse, Ballenhaus Street and Dean Charles Square. In the heart of the town there is also a small baroque church of St. Piotr and Paweł with a richly decorated interior.

In the past, the city was an important center for the production of violins. The Klotz family of violin makers lived here, selling their products throughout southern Germany and abroad. At exhibitions at the Violin Museum you can learn about the history of their manufacture and the history of the city.

The surroundings of Mittenwald are a great place for hiking. A dense network of trails allows you to choose the route according to your skills and the preferred length of the trip. A popular destination is the Karwendel Mountains 2244 m, at the top of which there is a restaurant and a trail node. You can get here on foot or by the Karwendel gondola. Lake Ferchensee, surrounded by mountains, is another picturesque place in the area.
