Our first impressions of Garmisch, Germany were not great as it took us 90 minutes to go the last 4 miles in to town due to a car accident. This trip we were here mostly to stay in the igloo but also because the military makes a big deal of Garmisch with its recreational resort there. Edelweiss is always full so we were staying in Mercere hotel for this visit. It is much nicer than our usual digs and also much more expensive.
I loved the paintings on the houses everywhere.
The weather was like spring so we found downtown Garmisch and did some shopping. But the best was sitting outside drinking a beer and having pommes without being freezing cold.
For dinner we found a guest house that I think was frequented by locals. It was in the neighboring town to Garisch called Partenkirchen.
They had a DJ of sorts and people were dancing. There were also a couple of boys that did the dancing while jumping and slapping their feet.
