Weekend in Bavaria, Germany

by - 12:33 PM

I had been dreaming about traveling somewhere on birthday, so I finally managed to plan a birthday surprise trip for my bf.  I knew, that the best surprise would be somewhere where mountains and beautiful sceneries are, so this time I decided to spend a weekend in Bavaria, Germany. We spent 3 days in Mittenwald, a Bavarian fairy-tale town. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t quite sure about this place, since there weren’t a lot of information on the TripAdvisor and other travel blogs, but now I can totally assure you that it is a perfect weekend getaway destination with beautiful mountains and breathtaking sceneries.

Memmingen airport to Mittenwald

Getting to Mittenwald from Memmingen airport might be a bit complicated and it will take you around 3 hours, so I suggest you to leave some spare time. We flew to Memmingen airport, and then took a bus to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, from which we went to Mittenwald by train. There are several options to get from Memmingen   to Mittenwald, mainly by DB trains and Flixbus busses. Though, I suggest you to search for the cheapest option, as some of them might be quite expensive.

Things to do in Mittenwald

Mittenwald is a small Bravarian town with beautiful oldtown, fascinating nature and mountains. Most of the buildings are hand-painted which makes it even more special and fairytale-like. As it is quite popular destination among hikers, there are many things to do in Mittenwald. 
Talking about food, you'll easily find what to eat in Mittenwald, as there are some coffee shops and restaurants, as well as supermarkets. However, this time we decided to prepare food ourselves, at our cosy apartment which we booked on booking.com.

Talking about hiking there are many hiking routes in Mittenwald, and they are easy to follow. Our first stop was Lautersee and Ferchensee lakes. It took us nearly 3 hours to get there and get back to Mittenwald. The track is easy so you don’t need any special hiking equipement. And oh, the views were fantastic!

Later on, we decided to go to Austria (didin’t I tell you, that Mittenwald is a town on the border of Germany?) We went to Leutascher Geisterklamm, which took us about an hour, but If you’re planning to come there on season, you could take a bus. The trail itself is free and quite long, with beautiful views. It might be quite a challenge for those who are afraid of heights, but I can assure you that you’ll feel quite safe, and it’s worth taking a risk.

We’d planned to get on the top of Karwendel, but sadly weather conditions were poor, and we couldn’t make it. So we Just spent the rest of the day strolling around Mittenwald old town, and enjoying beautiful views from the bottom.

Have you ever been to Bravaria? What was your favorite Bravarian town?
