I will never forget Mittenwald and the close by village Krün. A have very good memories which date back many years.
I was still a student. Returning from Italy my motor scooter broke down just before the German border in Austria and I pushed it to Mittenwald. At the time I thought I could find a friend of mine who was spending his summer vacation in a hotel owned by his in-laws. After a long search, I realized that this hotel was not in Mittenwald but in a near by village, called Krün.
So I again pushed the heavy scooter along the street in the direction of "Krün".
I was completely exhausted when some friendly people stopped and towed me with their little car to this village. I found my friend at the Hotel Schönblick, borrowed some money, took the engine apart, fixed the failed gear box and lived like a king in the hotel.

Mittenwald many years later

This adventure took place many years ago, all the debts have been paid, but the good memory about this area is still with me.
For that reason Mittenwald and Krün were our first targets when we lived for one year in Germany after my stay in Canada.
I told Elizabeth the story and I tried to show her the different places, were I went when I was young. I found out that so many things had changed and improved but the Hotel Schönblick did not exist any longer.

Mittenwald - many thanks to Kira Nerys

We had found a parking spot and walked

Similar to most cities in Germany Mittenwald has also an area reserved only for pedestrians.
I realized that shopping could not be compared with the old times and many fine, new restaurants had opened.
Elizabeth decided that we should live somewhere in "her" mountains.
Mittenwald is world wide known for it's violins, hand-crafted by masters. If you are interested, please ask for detailed information when you are here.
Use the link below to listen to a brief demonstration. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings and check for events.
Bavarians love to celebrate many things and wont' miss any opportunity to have fun. Elizabeth really loved all the little festivals.
Check the Internet for videos about erecting a Maibaum.

In 1999 Mittenwald had a birthday party. The village became 900 years old.
Many people asked us about the history of violin making in Mittenwald.
Thanks to the help of Mittenwald's "State School for Violin Making and Plucked Instruments", we could create a web site with many interesting information.

Mittenwald has a beautiful spa
