Garmisch-Partenkirchen Walking Tour

Garmisch-partenkirchen, Germany

Garmisch-Partenkirchen is an amazing place! This merged city sits at the heart of a historical European trade route of the Middle Ages causing an unbelievably unique and blended history. In more modern times, the influence of the Nazi party and the atmosphere of the American occupation in the late ’40s has radically impacted the attitude and culture of this valley paradise. This tour provides fantastic insight into the history, art, architecture, dining, and people of this sublime Alpine city.
