The best word for this part of my journey is WOW! What a stunning part of the world this area is. Garmisch-Partenkirchen is in Bavaria, and used to be considered two separate towns... then the 1936 Olympics were held at a location between the two towns, and it was decided they should be annexed, hence the title "Garmisch-Partenkirchen." The towns are separated by the Partnach River, and a highlight of my visit was to hike the Partnach Gorge on the Partnachklamm - amazing! I have also taken a trip up to the Zugspitze, which at 2,962 meters, is the tallest mountain in Germany. Of course, I HAD to have a German dunkel bier at the "top of Germany!" It's been an outstanding visit, coming here to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Enjoy all the pictures, and I'll "see" you again in Vicenza, Italy!
