We had a stroll through the town early morning when shops were just about to open. The town has beautifully painted buildings and it's so relaxing strolling around. Wished we had stayed longer in Mittenwald to enjoy the place

One can leisurely walk around and visit the violin museum there. Or go to the nearby Alpine for a day.

This busy strip of town was just idyllic. Wonderful little shops, eateries, etc. The shop owners were all so friendly and helpful. The buildings surrounding this area are just exquisite! The paintings and architecture...well, it is Bavaria!!!

Can't tell you how much we love Mittenwald! It's a small village surrounded by gorgeous mountains and is only 15 minutes drive from Garmisch-Partenkirschen. The buildings in the old town are beautifully painted. Everywhere we look, there are pretty buildings, shops and cafes. It's the...More

The station is, as the other contributor says, not very far at all from the old town and it is a level walk with no hills. The Karwendel cable car may also be reached from the station, it is in the opposite direction to the... More
