    Garmisch-Partenkirchen

    August 26, 2017 in Germany

    Today we visited the Partnach Gorge (Die Parrnachklamm), about a 20 minute walk from the the Great Olympic Hill (the site of the ski jump originally built for the 1936 Olympics). This is one of the oldest tourist sights in the area, dating back to its opening as a natural monument in 1912. Original access to the gorge before this was made to facilitate the floating of felled timber from one side of the gorge to the other (where it could be used for building). After a picnic lunch by the river, we returned through the gorge...stopping for the obligatory beer at a beer garden on the way back to the ski jump (which had an amazing display of restored very very old BMWs).Read more

    Garmisch-Partenkirchen

    August 25, 2017 in Germany

    We caught a cable car to the top of of Alpspitze (2,628m), getting a brief view of Zugspitze (2,962m) on the way up. There is an overhanging viewing platform at the top, extending out over the very big drop below...a restaurant with surprisingly reasonably priced meals (although given the cost of getting up on the cable car, maybe that is the least that might be done!)...and a huge variety of walking tracks leading off in several directions. After taking lots of photographs to record our 'achievement', we ate ofcourse...and then sensibly hiked downhill (of course). After about an hour and a bit of walling we reached the other main cable car (with smaller cars)...and caught that down.Read more

  • Day64

    Ég náði loksins öðrum góðum labbitúr úti í náttúrunni. Þegar ég kom niður af Zugspitze dreif ég mig með strætó niður að skíðaleikvanginum sem var byggður fyrir vetrarólympíuleikana 1936 og gekk þaðan upp í Partnach-gljúfur, sem verður einn af hápunktum ferðarinnar. Þarna streymir ísköld jökulá ofan úr Zugspitze-jöklinum um þröngt og djúpt gljúfur sem hefur verið gert manngengt með mikilli fyrirhöfn.

    Gekk síðan upp fjallið fyrir ofan gljúfrið, fékk mér hressingu á hinni óumflýjanlegu fjallakrá og kom hringleið niður mjög bratta fjallshlíð.

    Alls mældust 6,3 km, en síminn missti GPS-sambandið niðri í gljúfrinu, svo þetta hafa verið nær 7 km. Skynjarinn í símanum mínum ákvað að ég hefði hjólað af því ég var svo fljót niður!

    Í lokin er mynd af skíðastökkpöllunum, af því mér þykja þeir svo aumkunarverðir að sumarlagi.

    P.s. ef ég minnist á eitthvað og myndirnar vantar, prófið þá aftur síðar. Internetsamband hérna er almennt lélegt og ég verð að hlaða myndunum upp einni í einu.

    Garmisch-Partenkirchen

    August 12, 2016 in Germany

    The next Day we drove to Garmisch- Partenkirchen a town I never had a desire to visit BUT its so worth it!
    The Atlas Sports Hotel on the other hand was not the best and I would never stay there again, the rooms where ok and the bathroom was really nice but the bed was terrible and broke. Same with the whole area the Hotel was at, not taking care of.
    Garmisch-Partenkirchen has a great Wafflehouse which I can recommend from my heart <3
    it was the best breakfast we had so far!
    Address: Marienpl. 10, 82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen
    After eating there we wen to the Big Ski-Jump Tower which was used at the Winter Olympics 1936, they remodel it multiple times but it still looks crazy impressive.
    From there we drove to the Partnachklamm (which is a gorge.The gorge, which acts as a natural conduit for the Partnach River, runs 700 meters or 2,305 feet between limestone walls that reach 80 meters (262 feet) high. A series of galleries and tunnels has been carved out of the rock along one side, allowing visitors to walk along the rushing river and duck behind waterfalls.)
    It was amazing!!! We loved it so much!! We even hiked over the klamm.
    That evening we went out to eat at Zum Wildschütz
    Address Bankgasse 9, 82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen
    The food was the best real German food and so yummy!
    We had a great day!!
    On our last day we went to the tiny museum downtown Garmisch....it was soon cute I really enjoyed it a lot!
