If you took the time to advise folks what you like maybe one could answer it. As it stands you really havent put much thought into it so not sure how helpful anyones answer will be.

I agree with teleport. I've been in Germany since mid February and have visited Mittenwald twice! It is soooo beautiful and charming. It took my breath away! I also visited Ober and it was nice, too. But Mittenwald (for me) was better. I can pass on some info as to where I stayed if you want.

I'll be in Munich till mid/late April and I'm def going back because the views are spectacular. I'm not suggesting you go 2,3 times (it's a tiny town), but I think you'll be happier visiting Mittenwald.

Have to stop doing this- I agree with KIR.

Without any indication of what you want, the answers can't be useful.

Mittenwald- village high in the Alps with cable cars, mountain walks. Oberamm.- small town in wooded valley with great architecture; passion play.

Great choice, and easy to get to if you are coming from Munich. You could actually combine a train trip using the Bayern ticket to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Zugspitz with a visit to Mittenwald (time wise this works better on a weekend as you can travel before 9 am with the Bayern ticket). When you are done with G-P, just hop on the next train to Mittenwald, about 20-30 minutes further from G-P (trains go approx. hourly). You could go up the Karwendelbahn in Mittenwald, it's cheaper than Zugspitz. Allow for a leisurely walk through the town, a meal, and then catch the train back to Munich! A great outing!

Tip: pick up a timetable leaflet for this route at the train station so you have all the train departure options with you as you go.

Thanks Lorikeet, we have 2 nights there (after Fuessen) so will be able to go up the cablecar and do some lovely walks. We will return to Munich via Zugspitze, as my son really wants to see snow!
